#776 Site of First Public School in Castro Valley
This site was part of the original Don Castro land grant. In 1866 pioneer settler Josiah Grover Brickell made a land grant of this site for "educational purposes only" and paid the teacher's salary, who taught children by day, in the one room school house, and farm hands at night by candlelight.
