41st Santa Clara Historic Home Tour

 

Friday, December 6th & Saturday, December 7th

 

 

Four private homes plus the Mission Branch Library will be on this year's tour.   A Holiday Classic Car Cruise, coordinated by the Reclaiming Our Downtown organization and featuring many vintage vehicles will take place in the Old Quad in conjunction with the Home Tour.

 

The architectural styles featured this year include Italianate, Colonial Revival, and Craftsman. Three of the homes date back earlier than 1906 but one of the homes is a circa 1938 Vernacular Spanish Eclectic cottage.
