Get Inspired at the Santa Clara Historical Home Tour

November 18, 2016


Santa Clara’s history is told in part through its buildings, especially its homes. This city has been witness to a variety of architectural styles, many of which are unique to their own era. If you live in an older home and are considering updating or remolding, you can find inspiration at the annual Santa Clara Historical Home Tour, coming up December 2nd-3rd. This Santa Clara Tradition provides in-depth tours of private and public buildings with architectural significance.

This year’s Santa Clara Historic Home Tour includes four private residences, a public building tour, and a special, bonus photo exhibit. Step back into the Victorian era inside a Queen Anne Cottage and Gothic Revival Home. Then explore the height of early 20th century houses in a Craftsman Bungalow and Circa 1950’s Mediterranean Villa. Each of these properties reveal the richness of their time periods and the value of preserving these homes.

There will also be a tour of the historic Harris Laas House Museum, where a “Nutcracker Christmas” will sweep you from room to room in old-fashioned holiday cheer.  The 11-17-16_tippery_image3Mission Library, another historic Santa Clara landmark, will also host a special exhibit providing a look into this building’s past, and peek into its future planned projects. Whether you live in an older home or not, the Santa Clara Historical Home Tour is sure to inspire your next home project.
