Q:  I'm confused! Is the Historical Society the same as the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group (MOHPG) or the Monrovia Historical Museum? Or are they different?

A:  There are three different organizations that play a role in preserving Monrovia's history.  The Historical Museum at 742 E. Lemon Ave.  has wonderful standing exhibits and programs.  The Monrovia Historic Preservation Group (MOHPG) holds the annual Historic Homes Tour each year, has monthly programs and is active in preservation.  Our focus is narrow -- we maintain the Anderson House Museum at 215 E. Lime Ave. and implement the Monrovia Legacy Project -- putting our City Historians' collections online.  

Q:  How can I see what's in the Legacy Project Collection?  Can I get copies of the photographs or documents?

A:  If you click on the "Legacy Project" tab on this site, it will take you directly to the collection.  You can order prints or download copies of the images directly from the site for personal use.  See the note at the bottom of its first page for details.

Q: When are you open?

A:  The Society is reachable by phone or email but does not have an office location or hours.  The Anderson House is open for regular events and by appointment and will open on a regular basis as we get volunteer docents.
