Fred Stoke's Redwood Highway ranch is a Luddite's tribute to a bygone era when gas was pumped in tall glass cylindrical tanks and oil was sold in bottles. Collecting for only about a decade, the former business contractor has amassed a sprawling yard full of historical treasures. Art classes have been known to camp out on his front yard and paint pictures of the mock General Store he built to house his thousands of vintage oil cans, the Signal gas station he salvaged from the corner of Fifth and Wilson streets in San Rosa (back when gas was less than a quarter) and the hard-to-miss horse-drawn farming implements that act as a fence.

Location: 5525 Old Redwood Highway, between Fulton and Shiloh roads. Exit US-101 at Shiloh Road and turn right onto Shiloh Road. Drive east ¼ mile and turn right on Old Redwood Highway. The Stoke Ranch is about ½ mile south on the right side of the road.
