Pacific Grove is said to have over 1000 Victorian homes, making it the highest concentration of Victorian homes per capita in America! The Victorian craze took place in a period of time from around 1830-1910, but specifically the Queen Anne style, which is what Pacific Grove is noted for was popular from 1870 through 1910, when many of Pacific Groves first homes were being built.
Pacific Grove was a Methodist Retreat founded in 1875 and the first annual camp meeting was held in August of that year. The Retreat Association began selling lots in the retreat area near Lovers Point and downtown Pacific Grove to members of the retreat so they could build homes. Up until then, the lots were outfitted with tents for the summer.
The first home was built in 1880 at 131 19th Street, a modest 2 bedroom cottage. During the next 30 years the town would experience hundreds of new Victorian Era homes being built including primarily Queen Anne Victorians and Arts and Crafts (Craftsman) style homes.
