Members of the Victorian Preservation Association of Santa Clara Valley, a non-profit organization, share an interest in the older buildings of our community, especially turn-of-the-century homes. Whether your interest is Gothic Revival, Italianate, Eastlake, Stick, Queen Anne, Classic Revival, or the humble Craftsman bungalow, you’ll find plenty of friends and information when you join our club. We embrace ALL vintage architecture, not just Victorians and welcome all types of homeowners. Membership is open to anyone interested in learning about building and conservation techniques, architecture, decoration, and historic preservation of Vintage homes. Meetings are usually held in members’ homes, but being an owner of one of these homes is not required for membership.
On our web site you’ll find info about how to join the Victorian Preservation Association. You can see a gallery featuring some of our member’s homes, and learn about our former restoration project, the Andrew P. Hill House. Our source list has local and national resources for restoring old houses. The original inspiration for beginning this website in 1995 is our index to historic house museums. You’ll also find links to other Victorian and old house sites on the World Wide Web. This is all pretty high tech for a bunch of people living in the past, but then you probably know our valley by its other name, Silicon Valley.
