Significance: "Fountain Oaks" is a superlative example of the many opulent ranch estates nestled in the foothills of the Santa Clara Valley. At its peak, the ranch contained some three dozen structures and over 500 acres of lawns, orchards, vegetable gardens, feeding lots, and grazing lands. It was originally the property of Kodak heiress Gertrude (Strong) Achilles. "Fountain Oaks" was also the home of Charles Kellogg, the "California Nature Singer."
