The Vallejo Adobe was part of the Mission San Jose property where rancheros would watch the cattle.  As the Spaniards lost control to the Mexicans, Don Jose de Jesus Vallejo oversaw activities and later was given owner's right to this land.  The site of the adobe was probably occurred since the early 1800's. 

The brick in the current adobe has been patched through the years and went through a major renovation in 1999.  This family tour goes back to the time when Don Jose de la Jesus owned the land, and his daughter Maria Vallejo wrote about living in such a western outpost. 

The tour will also tell of other families that owned this land  (John Rock, John Lander, and the Roeding's) and activities on this very special place. Your family will learn about early Fremont history and it's impact on California History.

See the Math Science Nucleus' newest project working with City of Fremont, Bruce Roeding, and California Nursery Legacy Council.  Preserving the history of this nationally recognized area in Fremont.  Many just think of this area as a failing nursery, but the history of this area records the agricultural history  in the Niles area.  This is a rare look into our archiving operation and what we hope to accomplish.  You will be proud of being a member/supporter of the Math Science Nucleus, as we work to save a legacy.
