Darrow-Quaresma House & Winery, 109 Emory Cmn, Fremont, CA 94539
Darrow-Quaresma House & Winery, 109 Emory Cmn, Fremont, CA 94539 Built in the 1920s for G.O. Darrow, who owned and operated several local businesses including Darrow’s Bakery in Niles, Old Mission Auto Park at Mission San Jose and a winery on the property, the home was later owned by Judge Edward A. and Emma Quaresma. Mr. Quaresma was the area’s first Municipal Court Judge and is well known for his life of civil service, including organizing and incorporating the chambers of commerce in Alvarado, Newark, Irvington, Mission San Jose and Niles. Robson Homes purchased the home as part of the property from Lila Bringhurst during the 2000s. Bringhurst, who passed away in 2016, was a Fremont advocate and civic leader who helped raise public awareness of Fremont’s history and architecture. It had been her dream to see the home restored to its former glory.
