More in a bit.
Read Frances Roeding's account of the adobe transformation.
Listen to Bruce Roeding and his mother Frances talk about the adobe in this interview with Phil Holmes. Skip to 17:25 or so. Fred Reimers combined the old and new - windows and fireplace. Johannes did the landscape after the building was finished. Two worked together to design Roeding Park. Johannes was a good friend of George Sr. Flower and bulb show came about through the restoration of the adobe. People came down to enjoy the landscaping for a long time. Niles Canyon and International Kitchen was a big tourist draw.
Is it a coincidence that there is a Sunset gardens chair sitting in the adobe garden?
