"Wabana Common is lined with 100 year old palm trees with a mansion at the end!"

I’ve never lived on this street, but I lived in the neighborhood. I used to walk all around the neighborhood to exercise and I would look at all the houses for sale. One house was on Wabana Common. This street is like no other in the area. It is lined with tall palm trees (with animals scurrying in them when I walked past!). At the end of the street is a huge mansion. I’ve never seen another mansion like it in this part of Fremont. A couple years ago, there were only a few houses on the street, but now they’ve developed it with more single family homes. It’s definitely a unique street!

Here's what I found on-line about the history of the mansion.

Henry Curtner arrived in Washington township in 1852. A native of Fountain county, Indian, Curtner became a prominent farmer businessman, and philanthropist in the warm spring area. Curtner's ranch comprised several thousand acres and produced crops of fruit, nuts, barley, hay, peas and potatoes. The land was originally part of the Rancho Aqua Caliente Mexican land grant to Fulgencio Higuera in 1839. Curtner bought the property from Abran Harris in 1868. In 1879 Curtner built a seventeen room mansion, which consisted of two stories, a basement, and a small third story cupola. From which the family and guests could watch boats dock at the landing below.

Henry Curtner died 1916. His heirs owned and lived on the property until 1934, during which time they built additions and alterations. The mansion has been restored to resemble the orignal design.

The Canary Island date palm trees along Wabana Common are believed to have been around 1900, where the street was used as the main driveway to the mansion.

This property has been designated as a primary historic resource by the City of Fremont.

JaneC3 The historical house is pretty, but people who live in that house is not nice. I love the area, but having a neighbor like that is not pretty. 2014
