The city was named after the a Spanish Mission called; Santa Clara de Asís. The original mission was founded in 1777 and was incorporated as a California city in 1852.
Santa Clara is known as an IT town, with high-tech companies such as Intel making their home in Santa Clara. The local university, SCU is the oldest institution of higher learning in the State. To go along with these diverse claims to fame, Santa Clara is home to the San Francisco 49ers.

As part of the Spanish conquest of began California, the Mission Santa Clara de Asis was founded in 1777. In 1846, the American flag was raised as the sovereignty of the California Republic was now in the hands of the United States.
In 1851, Santa Clara College was established on the grounds of the original Mission and a year later the town of Santa Clara was incorporated.
Until recently, the city's economy revolved around agriculture; with orchards and vegetables being the mainstay. As fate would have it, the semi-conductor and IT sector would take off in Santa Clara and beam it from the past into the future, with Intel, Sun-Microsystems, Texas Instruments and others working their miracles in town.
Today, Santa Clara is one of the few cities in America that has any homespun industry remaining. It is a pity, because much of the world's computer hardware could come for California, if the major corporations were literally forced to move offshore. US Federal policy over the last 30 years must be blamed. Who else can be blamed?
