Santa Clara was one of the 21 missions built in California in 1777. In 1846, the American flag was raised over Menterey when the sovereignty transferred to the United States. For a century afterwards, Santa Clara’s economy was centered around agriculture and saw relatively slow growth throughout the late 1890s. With the arrival of the semiconductor, Santa Clara’s industry began to change drastically.
Today, Santa Clara is home to approximately 130,000 residents and its population has grown by double-digits every year since 2000. Like other towns in Silicon Valley, Santa Clara is the home of many high technology companies and Silicon Valley Power, the major utility company in the area. It is also home to the NFL’s 49ers and the newly built Levi’s Stadium, which hosted the Super Bowl 50 on February 7, 2016.
We love Santa Clara for its University-town vibe, excellent
community sports and recreational facilities, and value for your dollar.
