  • Over 100 years of Santa Clara History The Harris-Lass home belonged to two families in its tenure in Santa Clara. I had the pleasure of touring the home with the President of the Historic Preservation Society of Santa Clara, Bob Byrd. If anyone knows this home, it is Mr. Byrd, whose knowledge of it is nearly as extensive as those who resided in it. The tour through the home takes about 90 minutes, no photography is permitted within the house. Guests are permitted to take as many photos of the grounds as they wish as well as to visit the other buildings. The collection of period materials is one of the most extensive in the valley as the grand-daughter of Captain Lass, left nearly everything she had in the home when she departed. Her parting wish was to have the home preserved for future generations under the governance of the city. Thanks to her generous donation and the work of the preservation society, we may all show our appreciation.
  • This is a great place to throw a party. The garden is perfect for an afternoon barbeque. We easily accommodated 75 people in the shade of the trees.
