THE STORY:

Dear Friends and Neighbors, 

The Newton House Collective has teamed up with the Bay Area Community Land Trust to preserve the home at 285 Newton Avenue as a Land Trust. The house was built as a single family mansion in 1906, and was known for decades as the Seulberger Mansion. Since the 1980s, this home has been the base of various collective formations comprised of creatives and professionals alike. Since 2008, the home has been reliable and affordable housing for people who might otherwise be unable to stay in Oakland due to the rising costs of rent and systemic marginalization. 

The efforts towards a Land Trust partnership would preserve the home as accessible and safe for us and future generations who dream of calling Oakland home. Now, we need YOUR help to make this community dream a reality! 

Our fundraising campaign kicks off Sunday, November 12 from 1-3pm. Join us for an exhibit on home and neighborhood history, and a presentation about Land Trusts. We'll also have drinks, hors d'oevres, and chair massages! We look forward to getting to building a stronger community, together!

In gratitude, 

The Newton House Collective
