The Jamison-Brown House

South Bay



One of the oldest historic houses in Santa Clara, this 1866 colonial house is one of Silicon Valley’s premiere venues. A charming location with its hardwood floors and enchanting style, this true gem is popular for life’s celebrations and professional retreats located on the Triton Museum of Art grounds. The wrap around covered porch and adjoining brick patio is ideal for outdoor set ups, integrating architecture and natural redwood landscape in the heart of Silicon Valley.
If you need to accommodate a larger guest list, add our outdoor sculpture garden area and redwood grove. With its effortless beauty, create a relaxing atmosphere and entertaining space by adding the tranquility of the entire garden area to your event. Whether the large, open lawn area or under the natural canopy of the redwood trees, this is the perfect area for dining and festivals. Evenings will unfold with landscape lighting illuminating the impressive collections of contemporary sculptures and walking paths for evening celebrations for you and your guests to enjoy.
