    The Santa Clara Valley has a rich and dynamic history. Through historical objects and artifacts, the permanent California Stories exhibition traces the story of the site where Santa Clara University now stands, from Native California to the founding of Mission Santa Clara de Asís, through the Rancho Period and Gold Rush, and up to the early years of Santa Clara College.
