Green Gables Historic District — the neighborhood of Green Gables, today a catch-all name for a number of distinct neighborhoods, was annexed by the City of Palo Alto shortly before World War II, but tract housing did not begin to appear there until the late 1940s. Developer Joseph Eichler was among the first merchant builders to develop the area, and he named his development after the larger neighborhood. [Santa Clara County, CA] [ Map ]
