"State Landmark"

The Old Customhouse is a Spanish Colonial style building that's famous because it's where US Commodore John Drake Sloat declared that California was part of the United States in 1846. Built in 1827, this historic building was used for civic purposes of Monterey County. The one-story structure, with a balcony in the front, reflects the olden style homes. This is the oldest government building in the state and the first State Historic Landmark.
