Atlas Obscura ‘Ukraina’ at Garin Regional Park

Father Agapius Honcharenko and his wife Albina once had a home in this park overlooking the San Francisco Bay high in the Hayward Hills. 

The pair were the first people who identified as Ukrainian to settle in the United States. Originally settling in Alaska before establishing a home in San Francisco, Honcharenko wrote anti-Czarist literature that advocated for social reform that was often smuggled into Russia. This made him a key target of the Russian government.
