The Rengstorff House, constructed in 1867, is one of the first houses to be built in all of Mountain View, California. Located a little less than 2 miles from Hotel Zico, historic home was built by Henry Rengstorff, a prominent local businessman and ferry operator. He made his fortune running his popular shuttle between Mountain View and San Francisco.
