ASILOMAR STATE BEACH AND CONFERENCE GROUNDS
Located on the Monterey Peninsula in the city of Pacific Grove, Asilomar had its start in 1913 as a young women’s summer camp and conference facility – an outgrowth of the inspired vision of the resourceful, socially-concerned and committed women of the YWCA. The historic buildings were designed and built by renowned California architect Julia Morgan between 1913 and 1928, in the First Bay Tradition, a regional off-shoot of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Asilomar represents one of the largest collections of Morgan’s work in the First Bay Tradition in one location. California State Parks has owned and operated Asilomar since 1956.
