Welcome to the Historic Monrovia Walking Tour! Using this website as your guide, you will be able to travel to and learn about six historical buildings in our wonderful town. The map below will show each stop's location, and the corresponding video will give you the building's story. We recommend bringing earbuds or headphones since it can be loud outside. If you are with a group, you may want to bring a tablet and speaker so that everybody can see and hear! If you would like to view the videos without streaming them, you can download each video by clicking the button below.
To learn about the stop you are at, simply select the stop number under the map, and then tap the green up arrow once you have finished. Have fun!
