NEW EXHIBIT
ROEDING CENTENNIAL

starts Sept 24

 Special Event: October 14, 2017: Fremont History Through the Ages 

The Roeding Family arrived in San Francisco in 1849 from Hamburg, Germany. Frederick Roeding became a mercantile banker who, after the 1868 Great Quake, purchased thousands of acres in Fresno with six other German families. They moved to Fresno to become part of the agricultural revolution in the Central Valley. In 1917 the Roedings  purchased the California Nursery Company in Niles, making  2017 their  one hundredth anniversary.

Their vast holdings throughout the state included citrus, fig, and olive orchards in southern California as well as several growing fields in the Central Valley.  California Nursery Company provided trees and exhibits worldwide, helping to propel the nursery  to become the largest  in the West Coast.
