Who were Julia Morgan’s most loyal Berkeley clients? Odds are on the Goddards, for whom she designed eight houses. One of these will be open at our Spring House Tour on Sunday, 2 May 2010. Also open will be two houses modeled on the Goddard tour house.

Who were the Goddards? Read about them in The Goddards and Julia Morgan: An Occasional Love Story.
