Dahlias have always been favorites here, and more than a century ago, according a San Leandro Gazette article dated 1987, a local social organization was named the Dahlia Club. In time, the dahlia was designated the city’s official flower.
The Casa Peralta is the City of San Leandro's historic house museum. Three descendants of the original land grant of Rancho San Antonio (ranging from the San Leandro Creek to the current-day City of El Cerrito) lived in the Casa. The home was remodeled in 1926 as a grand Spanish-style villa, with hand-painted tiles imported from Spain, that tell the story of Don Quixote.
