Jepson House

This Vacaville, California, house was built for William Linn Jepson’s mother around 1914. Jepson, who studied botany at the University of California, became the first Ph.D. from Vacaville (1899).

A charter member of the Sierra Club (1892), Jepson helped found the Save-the-Redwoods League and helped organize the Department of Forestry at UC Berkeley where he served on the faculty for 40 years.
