Archivist, museum exhibit creator, costume maker, Web designer, historic activist, wry observer of human oddities—Pacific Grove’s Esther Trosow has one expansive resume. She’s also probably done more to preserve and celebrate the history of “America’s Last Hometown” than any one person.

“A love of John Steinbeck and Ed Ricketts” brought Trosow to Pacific Grove in 1994, and within a few years she had developed the “Driving Tour of John Steinbeck’s Pacific Grove,” established 93950.com, a quirky portal Web site devoted to her new hometown, and been instrumental in convincing the City Council to change the name of High Street to Ricketts Row in honor of the legendary marine biologist whose original lab was on Fountain Avenue.
