Willow Glen History Tour
We are sorry that we were not able to pass by the Roberto Adobe & Suñol House (770 Lincoln Avenue in Willow Glen) due to the traffic and parked cars blocking the view. In 1847, Antonio Suñol built the brick Suñol House adjoining the adobe, sight on the original land-grant in the area. In 1836 the 2219 acres was the original land grant that would become Willow Glen. When it opens again, there are free tours on Saturdays from 12 pm to 2 pm.
At 1615 Dry Creek Road, the caravan stopped while a photo was taken of each participant in their auto in front of the beautiful Kirk Farrington House. Participants will be given a copy of their photo.
The tour ended at Wilcox Park where a few of the participants enjoyed a self-provided, socially distant, running board lunch.
I want to thank Dan for designing the tour, providing the detailed description of the homes and for doing a great job of leading us to the homes and streets. I also want to thank Alison England for posting on Nextdoor the locations where the public could see the cars.
