Long Description:
The Hinds House was built in 1888 and 1889 by Colonel Alfred J. Hinds and his wife Sarah. Hinds was a shopkeeper in downtown Santa Cruz and later became a real estate developer. He hired the architect John H. Williams to design his grand Stick Eastlake Victorian home. Williams was a well known Santa Cruz architect who designed over 60 local buildings between 1876 and 1892 including the Branciforte School building which is still in use today.
