5,000 Years of History in Seven Acres

[Panel 1:]
Pleasanton's past and the rich stories of the people that have come before can be discovered in the landscape and features of this park. Three periods of occupation trace regional settlement from prehistory to the present day.

Native American Occupation
From as early as 3240 B.C., the valley was part of a permanent settlement of Indians. In the late 1700s, Spanish missionaries established nearby Mission San Jose, claiming this land and using it for cattle grazing.

[Panel 2:]
Hispanic and Early American Period
Ranching continued here after Mexico declared independence from Spain in 1824 and the missions were closed. The property was gradually split into smaller parcels and sold, with tenant farming becoming its main use.

Dairy Operation
From 1919 until 1969, this was the home of the Meadowlark Dairy, the first and only certified dairy in Alameda County. At its peak, the property was filled with buildings, cattle and activity.
