The Meek Mansion Of Cherryland

William Meek, a pioneer of commercial architecture, was born in 1817 in Iowa. After moving to the Bay Area of California, William Meek planned and constructed the Meek Mansion in the unincorporated area of Cherryland in 1869.

The mansion acted as the center of operations for 3,000 acres of farmland during the time the Meeks family owned the land in Alameda County.

The entire property is currently owned and operated by the Hayward Historic Society.
