Pardee Home Museum
  672 11th St./Castro St., across from Preservation Park.  Fee.  Home to three generations of the Pardee family, this house was lived in by Enoch Pardee (mayor of Oakland in the mid-1870s) and his son, George C. Pardee (mayor of Oakland in the early 1890s and then governor of California from 1903 to 1907).  More than 50,000 pieces of family memorabilia and historical artifacts are displayed just as they were left when the home was donated, and all the furniture is original to the house.  A unique Carleton Watkins light fixture hangs in the downstairs hallway.  The expansive grounds hold a lovely mature coastal redwood.
