City of Berkeley Landmark
designated in 1993
Entomologist, naturalist, physicist, and inventor Charles W. Woodworth designed and built this all-redwood house in the Bay Region style. The three-level, seven-bedroom home has a brown shingle exterior, clinker brick fireplaces, and leaded glass windows. The entrance and main floor were designed for Mrs. Woodworth who used a wheelchair.

Woodworth, a professor of entomology, helped develop the University of California's College of Agriculture and the City of Berkeley's first public library. A world traveler, he spent three years in China organizing mosquito abatement efforts. He designed and was assembling a powerful telescope in his backyard when he died in 1940.
