Behind these adobe walls, you will meet the John Rogers Cooper Family, who witnessed the changes in Monterey from its days as a capitol of Mexican California through statehood in 1850. Captain Cooper was from New England, immigrated to California and married into a Mexican family. As a ship captain Cooper traveled extensively trading in hides, tallow, general merchandise and sea otter pelts.

This property belongs to the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is a National Trust Historic Site. In the 1980s, California State Parks restored the building and now operate the 2 ½ acre complex. Learn more by taking a guided tour, viewing the displays in the visitor center and by visiting the Cooper Museum Store.
