Built to serve as a public school and town meeting hall, Colton Hall now offers visitors a re-creation of the meeting room where California's first Constitution was drafted in October 1849 and exhibits on early Monterey. Colton Hall is a landmark in the City of Monterey, once the capital of Alta California.
Colton Hall Museum is located on Pacific Street, between Madison and Jefferson streets. The museum is open daily 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day.
