On Saturday, June 13 at 1 p.m., the Courthouse Docket continues as a free online webinar. Deputy Director Carmen Blair will discuss The Great Estates of the Peninsula.
In the late 1800s, the Peninsula was known as one of the elite suburban areas of the United States. The great families who ran the commerce, industry and banking of the West from offices in San Francisco, lived, or had country retreats, down the Peninsula. California millionaires sought to impress their neighbors with their grand Peninsula homes.
