Preservation Park in Oakland, California --- #10 of 10
Sunday, November 1, 2009
From Wikipedia: "The park includes sixteen historic buildings, five of which stand in their original location, and eleven of which were moved from elsewhere in Oakland to avoid demolition. The sixteen houses are arranged to resemble a late 19th century Oakland neighborhood."
Another feature of the park is the Latham-Ducel Fountain. According to Wikipedia: "The fountain is cast iron, forged in Paris, and features the moon goddess Diana. The detail is of Acanthus leaves. It originally stood at Latham House and Gardens, which was located at what is now 17th and Jackson Streets [a few blocks away, also in downtown Oakland]."
