The David Glass House was built in 1877 by David and Eliza Glass as the first historical museum in San Ramon's house. Built in the Victorian Italian style, it has been a popular historic site of life in the Valle de San Ramon in the late XIX and early XX centuries in the San Ramon region.
This two-story, white Italian, Victorian farm building was built in 1877 and was clearly located on the busy highway 680, next to the highway, busy San Ramon Valley Blvd. I wanted to always visit this building, but only recently there's a house museum that opened to the public. For a private tour, I was lucky to join a small party. The tone was set as soon as a docent greeted us in period dress. She started telling the story in 1877 of the Glass Family and the Valley when she crossed the bridge into the house.
Taking the door is simply a step back in time. The nine-room house has been furnished as if the Glass family were living there. All of the nine rooms were tidy and the many knickknacks with which the Victorians adorned their home could not hold a bit of dust. All is original to the time in the building. While the teapots, wallpapers and some of the furniture fabrics are new, all of them have a periodical look. The empathy shared by the two teachers, Pat and Kim, was amazing. They peppered their conversation with some CA in addition to Glass Families and the San Ramon Valley. knowledge. Knowledge. There is a connection between the glass family, Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid, and I have come to know more about women who work in these lengthy dresses at the 19th century.
