The Santa Monica Conservancy will hold a a tour and holiday party in one of the oldest and most unusual structures in Santa Monica on Sunday, December 11, from 4 to 6 p.m.
Built in 1875, the wooden “Carpenter Gothic” church was originally located at 6th and Arizona, moved three times, enlarged, and eventually converted into a residence in one of the more unusual instances of adaptive reuse.
Today, the structure at 2521 Second Street serves as home and office for its architect owners. The holiday event will include a discussion about the building’s most recent restoration and new construction. Craftsmen who were involved in the project will lead the discussion.
Admission is free to members of the Santa Monica Conservancy, and members of the public are invited to become members and attend: Call (310) 485-0399, or go online at www.smconservancy.org. New members can also join at the event. Membership fees range from $15 for seniors and students to $45 for families.The Santa Monica Conservancy is a nonprofit charitable organization, dedicated to protecting and raising awareness of Santa Monica’s architectural heritage.
