John Colpitts Ainsley, an Englishman, immigrated to California in 1886 and made his fortune in the canning of fresh fruit, which was almost exclusively exported to England. In 1925, he and his wife, Alcinda, built this retirement home in the English Tudor style.

The house is both a symbol of his success and a time capsule of the 1920s. The house and most of the furnishings were donated to the City of Campbell by the Ainsley’s granddaughters, Geraldine Lloyd Hicks and Georgene Lloyd Bowen.
