Great Estates of the Peninsula
28 Jan 2023 10:30 AM • Via Zoom
In the late 1800s, the Peninsula was known as one of the elite suburban areas of the United States. The great families who ran the commerce, industry and banking of the West from offices in San Francisco, lived, or had country retreats, down the Peninsula. California millionaires sought to impress their neighbors with their grand Peninsula homes.
The Great Estates of the Peninsula explores the suburban lifestyle during the late 1800s and early 1900s from European influence to relationships between the families to leisure activities. The presentation concludes by discussing the fate of some of the Great Estates.
