Couldn't have timed it better if we tried

You may recall, a couple of weeks ago we told you that the Historic Preservation Commission considered an application for historic landmark designation for the house 227 North Ivy Avenue. 

Don't remember?  Read about it here.

Well, now we are here to report--it's official!  On May 6, 2014, the City Council unanimously designated this property as Historic Landmark No. 130.  You can read the staff report here.

This followed an action earlier in the evening when the Council proclaimed the month of May as Historic Preservation Month which coincides with National and California Historic Preservation Months.

And speaking of preservation month, don't forget that Sunday, May 11 is the 32nd annual Mother's Day Home Tour put on by our friends at the Monrovia Historic Preservation Group.

We're still marveling at the serendipitous way this all worked out.
