Carmel is the site of one of Father Junípero Serra's Alta California missions, the Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo. The mission was originally located at the Presidio in the centre of the settlement, but Father Serra subsequently moved it to its present site, at the southern edge of the modern town. It is now a National Historic Landmark.

Around the turn of the century Carmel became the site of a famous artist's colony. Jack London describes the colony in a portion of his novel, The Valley of the Moon.

Carmel figured in a 1926 scandal involving radio evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, who vanished for a period of time and claimed to have been abducted. Several witnesses reported having seen her in Carmel together with broadcasting colleague Kenneth Ormiston during the time she was missing, and a grocery receipt signed by McPherson was discovered in a Carmel cottage.
