1. Robert Louis Stevenson: A writer's stay in Monterey - Open Salon. The Monterey Bay area is a favorite place for artists, photographers, writers, musicians, and other creative people. Living an artistís life is not necessarily the easiest choice, as Robert Louis Stevensonís life illustrates. (Submitted on February 21, 2013, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.) 

2. Stevenson House - Historic Monterey. First owned by Don Rafael Gonzalez, and reportedly built in the 1830s, this two-story adobe originally comprised a sala, or reception room, on the ground floor and one large room upstairs. Over the years it housed many businesses, until a Swiss businessman named Girardin purchased it and added on the Houston Street section, and it became known as "The French Hotel."
