The Patterson House is a 16-room Queen Anne Victorian home operated as a museum of Victorian life and local history. It’s located on the grounds of Ardenwood Historic Farm.
Our 2018 “Historic Days” season has officially kicked off! House tours are offered Thursday through Sunday, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. Tours are led by docents, dressed in 19th century clothing and take about 45 minutes.
For information on the Patterson House and its collections, house tours, and volunteer opportunities, please call the Patterson House office at 510-791-4196 or email. You can also visit the City of Fremont Patterson House website.
