Significance: These seven Harrison Street residences are the oldest continuous block of houses in the City of Santa Clara which have not been significantly altered. Numbers 1051 and 1065, erected circa 1891, were the first houses constructed on the block. A picturesque and harmonious streetscape is provided be these eclectic wooden residences, which mix stylistic characteristics - the Queen Anne, Eastlake, Stick and Shingle idioms. Variegated shingles, decorative bargeboards, scrolled brackets and incised ornamentation reflect the heyday of intricate millwork and the influence of pattern books. In the 1890s and well into the 1920s, this block on Harrison Street was always considered one of the finest, where the leading merchants and tradesmen lived. The street has basically retained its integrity and presently several houses are being renovated. / Much of the original architectural ambiance of the street has been carefully preserved by house owners.
