TRAIL RATING:1A
1 - Route is mainly paved with some gravel. It goes by parks, historical sites and old Victorian homes. This walk is like a textbook of Victorian Homes from the 19th and 20th Century. No cookie cutter homes here. Alameda is an old town on Alameda Island just off Oakland. The downtown has history at every turn and shady neighborhoods that are a pleasure to walk in. You see the Spite House, the Alameda Museum, the first church built in Alameda, the beautifully restored art deco lobby of the Alameda Theater (1932), the mansion Joseph Leonard built for his family after building the Victorians in Leonardville, the oldest house in Alameda (built in New York City and shipped around the tip of South America in the hold of a ship), five buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Park Street Historic Commercial District (also listed on the NRHP).
Registration box (clear plastic) is under the counter on the left wall.
