Santa Clara City in the 1890's

Some fragile issues of the Santa Clara Journal newspaper from December 1890 through December 1899 have been microfilmed and are now available in the Heritage Pavilion at the library. You can also find microfilm of most Santa Clara newspapers from 1901 through 1980.

History is brought to life when looking at the news of Santa Clara from more than 100 years ago. Of course, our genealogists will be looking for death notices and obituaries with information to unlock the mysteries of their relatives from that time.

The Foundation & Friends of the Santa City Library and proceeds from a past Santa Clara Historic Home Tour have made this valuable addition to our collection possible.
