description

Summary

Significance: The Santos Farm complex is historically significant as one of the few remaining farm complexes in southern Alameda County. The property has been associated with the Portuguese community for over a century. Architecturally, the house and barn are representative of regional types which are rapidly disappearing. The house is further distinguished by its generous application of tongue-and-groove redwood siding on interior walls and ceilings.
