Experience Victorian age farming near San Ramon homesTraveling back in time to the Victorian age from your San Ramon home is easier than you think. Sitting at the middle of the base of both the East Bay Hills and Oak Creek lies Forest Home Farms Historic Park, a unique San Ramon property that was gifted to the city in 1997. Widow Ruth Quayle Boone bequeathed her 16 acre farm to the public in honor of her late husband, seeking to merge the past with the present and to educate current and upcoming generations on the simple splendor of Victorian Life.

There is plenty to do and see at this historic park including visiting a rustic barn built between the 1850s and 1860s. Located in the Southern part of Forest Home Farms Historic Park, sits The Glass House Museum. This spectacular San Ramon home was relocated to the park from its original location, the Lora Nita Farm. Fully restored, The Glass House is open for tours, welcoming all curiosity seekers and offering a Victorian Life education program for field trip goers. Farm enthusiasts will want to hurry over to the Tractor Museum, complete with restored antique John Deere and Caterpillar farm equipment. Check out the map of Forest Home Farms Historic Park and plan your family’s day.
