Villa Mira Monte

 

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, built by 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 the historical 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. Villa Mira Monte is the repository of the rich history that defines Morgan Hill as a community… Who we were, who we are and who we will become!
