Looking back

 

Elmwood, the 22-acre estate of Silas and Olive Holbrook Palmer in Atherton, is surrounded by foliage in this 1881 photo.

The Holbrook Palmers lived in the home until it burned down in 1958, the same year Olive died.

Although the property had been bequeathed to the town of Atherton, Silas immediately replaced Elmwood with a one-story home on the original foundation and continued to spend his summers there until his death in 1963.
