Built in 1869 by William Meek, a pioneer of commercial agriculture, the mansion is characteristic of the affluent agricultural society of the Victorian era in California.
The estate is on the site of the former Rancho San Lorenzo. This area became known as "Cherryland" because of the many cherry trees planted by Meek.
In 1964, the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District purchased and began renovation of the mansion. In 1972, the mansion became a State of California landmark and in 1973, it was placed on the National Registry of of Historical Places. In 1991, the Hayward Historical Society became responsible for operation of the mansion.
