Front of house showing front entry Property owned by Fred and Kate Savage after it was subdivided by the Cotati Land Company from the original Thomas S. Page holdings in 1893. The Savages operated it as a chicken ranch with a feed mill. Fred Savage sold it to Kate Savage in 1910, who sold it to John Edward Kessing in 1916. Clarence Eales bought the property around 1930 and continued the poultry operation, during which time Eales became general manager of the Poultry Producers of Central California. Later owners include Irvin and Dessie Sloat, who established a worm and mushroom farm, and Dr. and Mrs. Hans Albertson, who operated their Alpine Pet Hospital on the property. The house, considered to be the oldest in Cotati, burned down under suspicious circumstances on June 8, 2009. The stone structure also destroyed by fire in Sept. 2009.
