A resource for folks living in or moving to Los Gatos, by Mary Pope-Handy

Downtown, Central & Historic Los Gatos

The Town of Los Gatos has five designated “historic districts”. They include the following:

Almond Grove Historic District

Broadway Area Historic District

Downtown Los Gatos Historic District

Glenridge & Bachman Park neighborhood

Fairview Plaza Historic District

University / Edelen Historic District

Why aren’t there more, given that many areas are older and the town dates back to the 1800s? One reason is that the neighborhood must be more than just old. It also must have significance to the town’s history. Another reason is that Los Gatos suffered two great fires that wiped out much of the downtown area east of highway 17 (near Forbes Mill).


Other centrally located parts of Los Gatos include

Creffield Heights and the San Benito area

Ohlone Court
