Long Description:
"Henry Miller began buying property on Mt. Madonna in the 1870s. Logging had stripped much of the mountain of its dense forest, yielding panorama views of the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Clara Valley.

During their first mountain summers, the Miller family “roughed it”, entertaining visitors in colorful, furnished tents.

In the 1890s, Mr. Miller began building what would become three expansive “bungalows”. He terraced hillsides and planted lawns, flower gardens, an orchard and a vineyard. After Miller’s death in 1916, the estate fell into disrepair. In 1927, the County of Santa Clara
began purchasing the property from Miller heirs for parkland." (visit link)
