 Haywood, Alameda County California

Haywood (or Hayward's), Alameda County, PO 15 miles southeast of Oakland, and ¾ of a mile from San Lorenzo station, on the Central Pacific Railroad, is a small village, occupying one of the most pleasant sites of the lovely section in which it is situated.

Being at the base of the Contra Costa hills, where a small gap opens to an interior valley, with a broad plain in front gently sloping to the water of the magnificent Bay of ban Francisco, it presents a landscape view of exceeding beauty. The surrounding country is of great fertility, and well cultivated, and its convenience of access to San Francisco gives it peculiar advantages for prosperity.
