SCAPA Annual Holiday Party Sunday, Dec. 15, 2019
Written by Mark van Wyk   
Wednesday, 16 October 2019
Save the date! Sunday, Dec. 15, 2019. We are once again holding our annual SCAPA Holiday Party at beautiful and historic Villa Mira Monte (aka Morgan Hill House) starting at 4:30 p.m.

Villa Mira Monte was built in 1886 by Hiram Morgan Hill for his bride, Diana Murphy Hill, as a country getaway from their home in San Francisco. Their visits led to the modern town's name, as train conductors would announce "Morgan Hill's!" when making special stops for the family and their guests. The house has been beautifully restored by the Morgan Hill Historical Society.
