The Saratoga Historical Foundation presents:
Fundraising Benefit at Historic Old Grandview Ranch
Saturday, May 19, 2018
You won't want to miss a unique opportunity to attend a spectacular event at Old Grandview Ranch, a magnificent French Norman Revival estate nestled in the foothills of Saratoga.
Its three art galleries house one of the largest privately owned art collections in the West, and its 22-acre themed garden is beautifully ladscaped with sculptures by internationally renowned artists.
Old Grandview Ranch, the home of Dr. W. Donald Head was originally purchased by Percy Pike, a wealthy San Franciscan, in 1926. Construction of the main house, guest house, six car garage, and equipment shed began in 1927 and was completed in August 1928. Upon his death in 1963, Pike bequeathed part of his estate to Stanford University. In 1969, the estate was purchased by Dr. Head, an English professor at San Jose State University.
The event benefits the Saratoga Historical Foundation which manages a museum, an 1850's furnished pioneer cottage, and a one-room schoolhouse. Year round lectures, exhibits, and events are open to the public. A pioneer living class is available for 2nd to 5th grades, reaching 1,000 students yearly. The 53-year old Foundation is all-volunteer and funded by membership and donations only.
