Robert Louis Stevenson visited Monterey for three and a half months in the fall of 1879. He came to win the hand of Mrs. Fanny Osbourne. During part of his stay, it is believed he occupied the second-floor room of this house, which was then called the French Hotel. While in Monterey he wrote an essay, The Old Pacific Capital, and gathered ideas for later works including Treasure Island.
The house was donated to the state in 1941 by Mrs. Celia Tobin Clark and Mrs. Edith Van Antwerp as a memorial to Robert Louis Stevenson.
Today the building holds one of the world's most important collections of Stevenson's personal belongings.
