What to know before you plan...
The Eugene O'Neill National Historic Site must be accessed through a private, gated road owned by a community of neighboring residents. In order to experience the Eugene O'Neill National Historic Site, visitors need to make reservations and will be driven by a park shuttle from the Town of Danville, California. You'll receive a tour through Eugene O'Neill's "Tao House", and have time to explore the grounds before returning to Danville on the shuttle.
The Town of Danville is located in the San Ramon Valley in Contra Costa County, California. It is one of the incorporated municipalities in California that uses "town" in its name instead of "city". The population was 42,039 in 2010.
