The Campbell Historical Museum is located in the City’s first public building, Firehouse #1. Visitors can explore the City’s rich history through self-guided tours. Changing exhibits use themes of Home Life, Community, Recreation, and Work to provide insight into daily life in the Santa Clara Valley over the past century. Engaging, hands-on features in each exhibit area encourage personal interaction with historical objects in order to better understand life in the region today.
Beautifully restored in an enchanting park-like setting, the English Tudor style architecture of the Ainsley House transports visitors to the bygone era of the 1920s. Built in 1925 as the home of canning pioneer J.C. Ainsley and his wife Alcinda, the home was moved to its present location in 1990. The exquisitely restored 15-room house is largely furnished with items original to the family, recreating the period when the Ainsley House was one of the grand homes of the Santa Clara Valley. The surrounding English gardens provide a refreshing respite for visitors to this unique historic house.
