San Jose in Santa Clara County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Dr. Warburton’s Oﬃce
Home to an Early Santa Clara Valley Physician
Dr. Warburton opened his office in the 1870s. After his death in 1903 the office was occupied by many other physicians and one dentist, Dr. Thomas Gallup. The building was used as a law office from 1954 to 1964 until urban renewal in downtown Santa Clara threatened to destroy it. In 1966 his office was the first building to be relocated to History Park.
Dr. Warburton’s medical practice extended as far south as San Luis Obispo and around what is now Contra Costa, San Mateo, and Alameda Counties. He was often paid for his services with cattle and horses. To find out more about Dr. Warburton’s Office, please visit our website: www.historysanjose.org
Austen D. Warburton donated the building.
