California Nursery Historical Park
I went by the California Nursery Historical Park in Fremont.

The family now operates the nursery as a mail-order business and it became a park in 1972:
These next two are interesting. The first one is a picture of the grounds in 1887 and you can see the little palm trees on the side. The second one is the remaining palm tree from one of them in the picture in 2018:
The California Nursery Historical Park is a great way to spend an early morning or any time of day.
