The Dickson Brothers Ranch occupied 650 acres at the bottom of Reclamation Road - the southern extension of Lakeville Highway - for about a century. In 2015 the levee protecting the ranch from the Bay was breached to complete the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Prior to flooding, every building and tree on the ranch had been removed. These images are the primary visual record of what once existed.
