The city of Santa Clara is located in the heart of California’s Silicon Valley, and it’s current economy and recent history have been significantly shaped by advances in the technology sector. The city of over 120,000 residents was incorporated in 1852 and is the county seat of Santa Clara County. Santa Clara is located 45 miles south of San Francisco. However, the city experiences surprisingly warm summers despite its relatively close proximity to the foggy and cool San Francisco Bay Area. Sunny skies and a host of amenities make Santa Clara attractive to both locals and visitors.
Santa Clara is home to Santa Clara University (SCU), and many of the town’s entertainment activities center around the college. For instance, SCU Presents is a performing arts team of students and faculty that puts on thought-provoking theatrical plays and musical productions throughout the year for the entire Silicon Valley community. The university’s Mission Gardens is also a popular site for exploring the school’s historic Spanish mission buildings as well as taking peaceful strolls around the beautifully landscaped grounds.

Prior to the information age, Santa Clara was an agricultural hub for the region, and some of the college town’s attractions still reflect those agrarian roots. The Harris-Lass House Museum depicts farm life in the mid to late 19th century. The museum features an Italianate-style main house, barn, tank house, summer kitchen, garden and orchard. Tours of the historic Harris-Lass house and surrounding farm often inspire modern-day pursuits of ultra-fresh produce at the Santa Clara Farmer’s Market that is open year-round. Other things to do in Santa Clara include touring the Intel Museum, visiting the Edward Peterman Railroad Museum at the Santa Clara Depot and enjoying the thrill rides at California’s Great America amusement park.
Santa Clara visitors can easily note the architectural differences among the early Spanish mission buildings of the 18th century, the Italianate Harris-Lass house of the 19th century and the popular home designs of today. A tour of Santa Clara’s neighborhoods displays the residents’ penchant for Craftsman, California Bungalow and even Mid-Century Modern Eichler construction designs. The focal point of these types of homes usually is the bounty of outdoor beauty in their surrounding settings. Their exterior adornments are often made of organic materials and include real wood siding, quarried stone facades and angular iron doors.
Although traditional wrought iron doors may not match the simplistic, contemporary styles of many Santa Clara homes, Pinky’s Iron Doors has an extensive selection of clean-line, metal doors in its Air Collection that enhances the appeal of Santa Clara’s most popular home styles.
