Guest Opinion: Ramona Street home was a labor of love

Former owners and longtime residents share memories of their life in a historic Palo Alto structure

by Bill and Barbara Busse

The house at 935 Ramona St. was historic because it was constructed 113 years ago. As many Palo Alto residents know, recently it was deemed "non-historical" by the City Council. It will probably be torn down and replaced by a more contemporary structure. As owners of the home for 29 years, we would like to share a bit of history along with our feelings on seeing our old home scheduled for demolition.

Bill and Barbara Busse now live at The Hamilton, a condominium development for seniors in downtown Palo Alto, "about as close to the center of things as 935 Ramona," Bill Busse said.
