2. History

Bernardo Fernandez, a pioneer resident of Contra Costa County, had the house built as his third residence in about 1894; its predecessors were destroyed by a flood and a fire. Dr. Joseph Mariotti bought the house in 1969; as of 2011 the family still lives there, raising chickens, geese, and ducks on the grounds, which also house a 1965 Ford Thunderbird, a 1950 Bentley, and Fernandezs 52-foot schooner Carlotta, named for his wife, which sank at the dock in the early 1900s and was raised in 1976 by the Ship Lifters of Pinole SLOP.

The house was listed in 1973 on the Contra Costa Inventory of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places.
