1. Jamison-Brown House Marker
Inscription.  The Jamison-Brown House is significant due to its architectural and historical associations with two well known Santa Clara families. The architecture is important since it shows the changes in a building that was originally constructed in the 1860s and remodeled in the 1930s. The structure was built by Samuel Jamison in 1866. In 1914 Jamison sold this farmhouse along with his 14 acres to his neighbor Alfred Brown. Brown remodeled the residence extensively in the 1930s. The veranda was taken from the Judge Bond House which was demolished for the Carmelite Monastery.

The Bond brothers befriended Jack London, who later based the Call of the Wild on Louis Bond’s dog Jack (Buck) and used New Park, Judge Bond’s home in Santa Clara, as the setting for the beginning of the novel. In the 1970s the residence was move to its present site.
