The beautiful Stick-style home was built in 1882-1884 by Julia Moses and Watson A. Bray for their daughter Emma, upon her marriage to Alfred H. Cohen, attorney. The families of both the bride and groom were wealthy and socially prominent. Watson Bray was a successful commodities broker while A. A. Cohen had established the first railroad and ferry system in Alameda County. He also served as chief attorney for the Central Pacific Railroad.
The house has never been sold out of the family and contains the original furniture, wallpaper, woodwork, and many personal objects. Stepping into the Cohen Bray House is stepping back 130 years into a unique and engaging world.
