I went over to Niles which is a part of Fremont. Before the 1950's, the city of Fremont was actually five different small towns and Niles was one of them. The Niles section is known for being quaint and its antique shops and its general small town feeling unlike the rest of Fremont:
It still keeps its railroad heritage:
It has a lot of cool shops to go into:
And Charlie Chaplin hated the place because it was so rural but shot one of his most famous movies there-The Tramp but Niles still remembers him:
I love walking around Niles and need to do it more since it is about 15 minutes from my house.
What a lovely place to play tourist right near where you live!ReplyDelete
I would happily explore that town too especially the antique shopReplyDelete
What a neat little town to explore!ReplyDelete
Niles is such a cute odd little place. For about a year I lived in Fremont (long story), but Niles seems like a different town altogether.ReplyDelete

Thank you for sharing with us!
Happy WW and a fine week!
Those are such fun places to visit. Love the yesteryear places. I miss how our town use to be and especially the passenger trains that would take to places. No longer a stop here.ReplyDelete

Wow, thanks for sharing. These are great photos, and so much history! And Charlie Chaplin filmed there!ReplyDelete
This town looks like a wonderful place to visit. All these photos have something special which makes it interesting.ReplyDelete
Thanks for walking us around, what an interesting place it is.ReplyDelete
That is so cool and that gas station looks like something straight out of Cars, the animated movie. I'm also a fan of Charlie Chaplin. It's funny how he wasn't a fan of Niles! Thanks for linking and commenting so faithfully on my blog, Amanda's Books and More.ReplyDelete
