Preserving the History of Morgan Hill

Visit Villa Mira Monte

The Morgan Hill Historical Society invites you to explore the fascinating story of our California community named after local rancher Hiram Morgan Hill. Here you will discover the Morgan Hill House, Hiram and Diana's beautiful Queen Anne East Lake/Stick style home built in 1884.


In 2005, a delightful 1911 Craftsman style home, built by a local orchardist in 1911, was moved to the property and is now the Morgan Hill Museum. The Morgan Hill Museum is a repository for archives and object collections, including artifacts, maps, photos, manuscripts, clippings and memorabilia pertaining to the local area and its inhabitants. 


Our Centennial History Trail winds through beautiful rose gardens and offers a reflective walk through the historical highlights of our area.

For a more in-depth look at local history, both the Hiram Morgan Hill House and the Morgan Hill Museum are open on Saturdays from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm with docents to welcome visitors and provide tours. We look forward to seeing you!

Thank you MH Rotary Club.png

Our sincere appreciation for the many Historical Society volunteers, talented crafts vendors, and local residents who came together for our Annual Spring Faire on April 29th and 30th.  Our success is all thanks to you!

Along with hand-crafted items, this year’s Faire also featured old treasures donated by members, from furniture and fine china to vintage magazines and vinyl albums. In total the event raised over $4,100 in funds to support our year-round history programs that benefit our communities in Coyote, Madrone, Morgan Hill and San Martin!
