Nicholas Brettnacher purchased 100 acres from Sonoma County Landowner William Biller, where her planted potatoes, hay and orchards. He sold the property to Gualala hotel owner Cyrus Robinson, who maintained the orchards but continued to live in Gualala. The two trees in the meadow are said to be the last orchard survivors.
