Two good friends took a tour of this "Little Castle" last evening. They were overwhelmed and astonished on this their first visit to the nationally recognized and landmarked building. It's classical architectural elements - gothic, romanesque, and moorish - are brought together in a beautiful six-story building that includes a theatre, hotel, restaurant and lovely indoor swimming pool. Come take a tour the fourth Sunday of the month from 1-3:30 p.m. and show your support for the non-profit Landmark Heritage Foundation whose mission it is to preserve the building and promote the legacy of Julia Morgan, its architect/builder extraordinaire. Miss Morgan was the first licensed woman architect in California and she is credited with over 700 projects.
The "little castle" by Julia Morgan, California's first licensed architect, is being protected and preserved by the Landmark Heritage Foundation, a non-profit preservation organization whose only beneficiary is this nationally recognized and California state landmarked building. For the last 12 years I've been involved with promoting Julia Morgan, architect extraordinaire, and raising money and finding friends who will support our preservation work: Julia Morgan History Center, exterior restoration, leaded glass windows, original furnishings, etc. www.landmarkheritagefoundation.org or www.berkeleycityclub.com
