The Maltby-McKinnon House, Concord CA – Project 365

Had to pay an unscheduled visit to Fry’s in Concord today, took the opportunity to find another historic house for some pictures. The Maltby-McKinnon House at 2350 Pacheco Street was built in the 1890s as the initial residence for the Adolphus Maltby family while their mansion was being constructed. Originally located on the Maltby Ranch off the east end of Bonifacio Street, the house was moved to 2360 East Street (now Mt. Diablo Hospital property) circa 1915. The house had been occupied by several families until purchased by the McKinnon’s in 1934 for $2,500 on terms of $25 down and $25 per month. The then classic, hipped-roof box house had 12 rooms and a sleeping porch; it remained the McKinnon home until 1979.

The McKinnon family house became the primary focus, social recreation center, dinner table, haven, and rest stop for numerous relatives, family friends, class and teammates, and neighbors – in addition to being home for the fourteen growing McKinnon children.

Subsequently, the Hospital, the Concord Historical Society, and the Concord Redevelopment Agency arranged for its relocation to the present 2350 Pacheco Street address. Designated as Concord Historical Land mark 3–10–76/8, it has been remodeled, and is used by the Oakland Catholic Diocese for its Charities and Counseling Services offices.
