Peralta Hacienda Historic Park

The Peralta Hacienda Historical Park is a six acre park in Oakland that is know as the "Birthplace of Oakland." Peralta Hacienda is a significant historical site in the East Bay or the San Francisco Bay Area as it was the first Spanish-speaking settlement in the Oakland area. The main house was built in 1870 by Antonio Peralta. The house is a museum of the era:

The original main house-Built in 1870
1830-1860 Sofa

Early 20th century Silver Saddle
1850's Chinese Trunk
1870's Parlor Chairs
Mid 19th century Meleodeon
 And the outside is very beautiful also:

The wall below is a rebuilt adobe wall. There was an adobe wall that surrounded the property but was knocked down in the great 1868 Hayward Fault Earthquake. This new adobe wall is in memory of all the people that lived there:

Peralta Hacienda Historical Park is a wonderful place and I am so glad that I got to enjoy it.
