The Morgan Hill Historical Society invites you to explore the fascinating story of our California community named after local rancher Hiram Morgan Hill. If the stories in these pages pique your interest, we hope you will come and visit us at Villa Mira Monte (VMM), what remains of the Ranch established in 1884 by Hiram Morgan Hill and his wife Diana Murphy Hill. This 2.5-acre history park is listed on the National Registry of Historic Landmarks.

 

While at VMM you will discover Hiram and Diana’s beautiful Queen Anne/East Lake Stick style home built in1884. In 2005 a delightful 1911 Craftsman style home, builtby a local orchardist in 1911, was moved to the property and is now the Morgan Hill Museum. Our Centennial History Trail winds through beautiful rose gardens and offers a reflective walk through history highlights of our area.

 

Our organization is supported by many volunteers and by a membership of local residents who truly value history. We believe in preserving Morgan Hill’s past for future generations and educating students to celebrate our rich history in order to create a strong sense of place.
