An Evolving Historical Record

Welcome to the "Research Monrovia Structures" web site and greetings from Monrovia, California. 

This is a work-in-progress research/database for history buffs, especially preservationists who may be interested in the architecture and early history of Monrovia, a typical citrus-based Southern California community of the late 19th century.

The site is temporarily under construction, and will be restored shortly. 

Colorized images of the Monrovia Planet Newspaper Building circa 1886 (original colors unknown). The Planet's first edition was released in November of that same year.
