San Jose Neighborhoods

San Jose has many neighborhoods where the residents have a strong interest in the well-being of their communities, as evidenced by their having established active neighborhood associations.

The following brief review of San Jose’s early days is drawn from the Buena Vista Neighborhood Association’s website, which is packed with information and terrific photographs from the past, as well as present.

The Early History of San Jose

Native Americans of the Ohlone group lived in the area of San Jose long before the arrival of settlers from the Spanish colony of Mexico. They made their homes near the Guadalupe River, the source of fresh water.

El Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe was founded in 1777 by colonists led to California by Juan Bautista de Anza, as a farming community to provide food for the presidios of San Francisco and Monterey. In 1778, the pueblo had a population of 68.

In 1844 Governor Manuel Micheltorena granted Rancho de Los Coches to Roberto Balermino, a Santa Clara Mission Indian who had lived there since 1836. The 2,219 acre rancho was bounded by The Alameda on the north and west and by Los Gatos Creek on the east.

In modern Spanish "coches" means "cars" but in those days it was a word for "pigs." Roberto lived on the land for about a decade in a small adobe house a few hundred yards from Los Gatos Creek.

In 1847, Balermino sold it to Antonio Sunol, an American settler. When Sunol bought the home from Balermino he named it ''Laura Ville” and you can still see the sign on the property, now used as a law office.

San Jose, California’s First Capital

When California gained statehood in 1850, San Jose served as its first capital. After more than 150 years as an agricultural center, San Jose experienced increased demand for housing from soldiers and other veterans returning from World War II, as well as aggressive expansion during the 1950s and 1960s by annexing more land area.

San Jose Now Dubbed the Capital of Silicon Valley

By the 1990s, San Jose's location within the booming local technology industry earned the city the nickname Capital of Silicon Valley.

Among the Older Neighborhoods in San Jose is Willow Glen

Willow Glen began as a marshy area with numerous willow trees surrounding the Los Gatos Creek and Guadalupe River. The historic main street of Willow Glen, Lincoln Avenue, was originally called "El Abra." Shortly after the assassination of President Lincoln in 1865, residents agreed to call it Lincoln Avenue.

Marshy areas of Willow Glen were drained in the early 1900's and planted with orchards. Later, houses and roads were built in the farmland and Willow Glen began to urbanize, with Lincoln Avenue developing as its downtown shopping area.

A streetcar took turn-of-the-century residents of Willow Glen down eucalyptus-lined Lincoln Avenue to downtown San Jose.

Willow Glen Joins San Jose

In 1927 the area was incorporated as the town of Willow Glen. By the 1930's the growth of the community (and the residents’ resulting desire to hook into San Jose’s sewer system and get off of septic tanks) caused Willow Glen to join the city of San Jose. In 1936 the town of Willow Glen ceased to be a separate entity and became a part of San Jose.

Today, Lincoln Avenue contines as a bustling shopping district filled with shoppers, strollers, and even dogs walking up and down the tree-lined sidewalks.
