Berkeley Historical Society and Museum Walking Tours

Berkeley Historical Society and Museum - Spring Walking Tours

May 14 - Nut Hill led by Lloyd Linford

The neighborhood east of La Loma and North of La Vereda Avenues was long ago nicknamed "Nut Hill."  After the death of the original "nut," Captain Thomas, and the 1906 earthquake, Bernard and Annie Maybeck bought five large parcels and built three great homes and one small one.  Only two of these survived the 1923 Berkeley Fire.  On this tour, we will view and discuss several significant homes in the neighborhood from the vantage point of the people who lived in them and became part of the legend of Nut Hill, including Charles Seeger House, the Maybeck Studio, the Maybeck Cottage, the Temple of the Wings, and the Jaime de Angulo house.  This walk with Nut Hill resident Lloyd Linford will focus on the colorful social history that unfolded inside some of Berkeley's most interesting residential architecture.

Tours begin at 10:00 am and last approximately 2 hours.  Advance reservations are required - to purchase tickets, please contact the Berkeley Historical Society and Museum at (510) 848-0181.
