Santa Clara Real Estate
Santa Clara won an All-America City award in 2001 from the National Civic League in a highly competitive program that selects 10 communities from throughout the United States for the prestigious honor. The Franciscan padres (priests) selected the fertile valley discovered by Ortega to establish the eighth mission, Mission Santa Clara, named for Saint Clare. Site of the Spanish mission Santa Clara de Asis founded in 1777, the town itself dates from the 1850s and is one of the oldest in the area. The Santa Clara Old Quad next to Santa Clara Universitys an interesting yet low-cost area of pre-World War II and even pre-World War I housing.
