Ardenwood Historic Farm (Patterson House)

Visiting the Farm
Imagine 205 acres in the heart of Silicon Valley, where time stopped about 100 years ago. Imagine a fully-functioning 1890s farm preserved in a modern world, a place for people to escape the stress of the modern-day grind.

The City of Fremont and East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) invite you to visit Ardenwood Historic Farm, home of the George W. Patterson House.

It's a place where people can:

  • Join in doing old-fashioned farm chores
  • Visit a cow or a sheep
  • Try their hand at turn-of-the-century crafts
  • Sample a cookie freshly cooked in a wood-burning stove
  • Ride a horse-drawn railroad
  • Tour our fully-restored Victorian farmhouse
