Circa 1910-1916

City of Berkeley Landmarks
designated in 1995
When the La Loma Park subdivision was created in 1900, the streets were laid out in harmony with the natural contours of the land as advocated by Berkeley's Hillside Club. The rustic quality of the stone walls, brick paving pergola, and benches along the steps reflects the Club's philosophy of building with nature. Adjacent property owners donated land to create this public pathway, one of many in the Berkeley hills. These new steps allowed easy access to the streetcar line which had opened on Euclid Avenue in 1903.

After the 1923 Berkeley Fire swept through this neighborhood, the steps remained exposed on a hillside of ruins and ashes. Features of the steps were rehabilitated after the Fire and again in 1992.
