1. The Heritage House Marker
Inscription. The Heritage House has been the center of historical horse racing activities in the Livermore – Amador Valley for over 90 years. Built around 1900, it is the sole remaining structure from the days of the privately-owned racing business that has been important to the economy of this area since the mid-1800’s. The adjoining track is the oldest one still in operation in the United States. Rodney G. Mackenzie entertained many Canadian and American harness racers who wintered their horses here. McKeenzie helped form the Alameda County Fair Association and the first Alameda County Fair in 1912.
