Nut Tree farm

Oh, to have been a child in California in the 1960's.......

"Nut tree farm was a popular stop for those traveling  between the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento along U.S. Highway 40.

The Nut Tree started as a fruit stand and the first permanent restaurant building opened in 1921. The Toy Shop and the Nut Tree Railroad opened in 1952. The railroad had a quarter-mile track running through the Nut Tree orchards and gardens. The Nut Tree Airport opened in 1955.

The Nut Tree was closed from about 1996 until 2006 when the new Nut Tree opened."
