About Asilomar:  Since 1913, The Asilomar Conference grounds have hosted conferences, first as a YWCA Retreat center, and now as a California State Park.  The Julia Morgan-designed structures embrace the Arts and Crafts architectural style and were designated as a National Historic landmark in 1987.  Nestled along the shoreline of California's famed Monterey Peninsula, the grounds include white sand beaches and Monterey pine, cypress and oak forests, along with ecologically significant sand dunes.  The name Asilomar is derived from the Spanish "asilo" meaning retreat or refuge and "mar" meaning sea.
