State Plaque


Site and plaque are located in the middle of a parking lot with Private Property signs, although the lot is not gated. Plaque faces toward house so you have to be on the site grounds to read it. Site appears to be private property.

From the Guidebook:

This was the first American home in Crockett, constructed in 1867 by Thomas Edwards, Sr., on land purchased in 1866 from Judge J. B. Crockett. Located on an earlier Indian village near the Carquinez Straits. Its timbers, some of them brought around the Horn, have been well preserved.

Plaque placed by the California State Park Commission in cooperation with the Carquinez Women's Club, October 15, 1960.
