Favorite Homes #6 - The Oaks
I doubt there's a home more integral to the history of Monrovia than this one. It's known as "The Oaks" and was built in 1885. The home was built for William Monroe, one of the city's founders and the man the city was named after.
You may not be able to read the sign in the front yard from this angle but the house is available for lease. That the home of a city founder in a city with pride in its historic homes could be tenant occupied seems unusual to me.

Yes, they do place historical markers in front of historical homes. I don't know if they all have them, but I have seen some.
