Celebrating California's Spanish Heritage
The last generation of the Munras family to live in Monterey was Maria Antonia Field, Estéban Munras' great granddaughter. Born in the Casa Munras in 1885, she lived at the residence until 1941, when the Jack Dougherty family purchased the property to use as Monterey's first garden hotel. Maria builds her new home at Rancho Laguna Seca, now named Pasadera. She died in 1962 and is buried in the cemetery at the Carmel Mission Basilica.
