Eden Landing, California

Eden Landing (also, Mount Eden Landing, Edendale, Barrons Landing, Barron's Landing, and Peterman's Landing) is a former settlement in Alameda County, California.[1] It was located west-southwest of Mount Eden.[1] Its site is now located within the corporate limits of Hayward.[1] Eden Landing was established in 1854 by farmers who were dissatisfied with the freight charges at Allen's Landing, which was a quarter of a mile (400 m) west.[1] The place was bought by Richard Barron in 1855, and renamed Barrons Landing.[1] Henry Louis Petermann and Mary F. Petermann operated their salt works here.[1] Stokes Landing was located east of Eden Landing on Alameda Creek.[1]

A post office operated at Edendale from 1873 to 1875.[1] Coordinates were obtained from USGS GNIS[2] for Barron's Landing.
