Significance: Luther Burbank purchased the property in 1884. On this site he lived 22 years and worked as a horticulturalist for 41 years. The site presently contains his residence, greenhouse, carriage house and a memorial garden in his honor. Existing plants in the garden purportedly planted by Burbank include the Cedrus Lebanii, under which Burbank is buried and the Juglans Paradox developed by Burbank for its rapid growth and nut production. Many of the plants incorporated into Memorial Garden were the same, or developed from, those Burbank had a hand in. The present use as a park and museum provides pleasure to thousands of visitors annually and introduces them to Burbank and his work.
