Hug-Gubler Home in Santa Clara

In Downtown Santa Clara, they have a Heritage Square. On it sits the Hug-Gubler Home and the Relief Society building. It was fun to find out a few facts about the home and why it is still here. It was originally built in the mid to late 1860's and was one of the first permanent homes built in Santa Clara. The Hug family lived in it until the 1890's when John Gubler then purchased it. His family actually lived in it until the 1980's. The church purchased the property but it eventually fell into disrepair and was set to be torn down. A few local residents actually formed a committee to purchase the property and save it. When thinking of a fundraiser to raise money for the repairs, Santa Clara Swiss Days was born. (An annual celebration/fair that Santa Clara hosts).

The Relief Society House sits on the same property as the Hug-Gubler Home. For more info and pictures, check it out here.

I love how the Downtown streets of Santa Clara are tree lined all the way down. It is a beautiful drive. The Historic Jacob Hamblin Home sits just a few blocks down from the Hug-Gubler Home. Be watching for a feature soon.
