Fuller Park Historic District Walking Tour 2022 – September 24th

Napa County Landmarks annual

2022 Fuller Park Historic District Walking Tour


This Perry-Browning Home was built in 1875. Here Tom Kennelly is describing its architectural history.


On Saturday, September 24th, local expert and tour guide Tom Kennelly conducted a walking tour of Napa’s very own Fuller Park Historic District. This historic district offered a wide array of architectural styles, from Queen Anne to Greek Revival to Prairie, and a glimpse into Napa’s past. Participants learned about local Napa architects Luther Turton and William Corlett; as well as the famous Coombs family, who had ties to this area!


This home belonged to Charles Gildersleeve and was built in 1905.

Hope all who attended this historical walking toured enjoyed the perfect weather while learning about Napa’s past!






See you next year!!
