Way back in 1849, when Monterey was the first capital of California, this white stone building was used as a place to hold town meetings. It was also a public school, and later a jail was added to the building. The very first Constitution for California was drafted here (after a vitriolic debate). Now the place serves as a museum to educate visitors about Monterey's past. Admission is free, so come spend an afternoon and take in the history.
