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 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.
