Three descendants of land grant recipient Lu Maria Peralta lived in this home. In 1926, Herminia Peralta Dargie (pictured above) remodeled the home in the style of a Spanish villa. Tiles depict the story of Don Quixote, and adobe bricks saved from the 1821 Peralta home were placed in the front wall. Just as Don Quixote longed for the romantic chivalry of the past, Mrs. Dargie was looking back to the lost world of her grandfather's and great-grandfather's Spanish California.

Lu Maria Peralta came to California from Mexico with the Anza expedition in 1776. In 1820, he was awarded Rancho San Antonio. He divided the land grant among his four sons. By the time his granddaughter Ludovina Peralta Ivey bought the property in 1874, the Peraltas had lost most of their land after years of court battles with American squatters.

Barbara Mathews Brooks and John Brooks donated this home to the City of San Leandro in 1972.
