History and Culture of Saratoga
The story of Saratoga begins with a small sawmill built in 1847 by William Campbell; 2.5 miles away from the area where the present day downtown is located.
This sawmill has been recorded as the seed for the city of Saratoga in California. Along with building the sawmill Campbell had also set up shops along the bank of what is now called the Saratoga Creek. However, a technical mistake of not focusing on providing adequate amount of transportation facility and the advent of California Gold Rush affected Campbell’s plans and didn’t let them materialize right then.
In 1951 Martin McCarthy Leased the mill and started building a toll road down to the Santa Clara Valley for facilitating the much needed transportation facility. With this the present day Saratoga was founded as McCarthysville. This gave the sawmill the long awaited boost and various other businesses also sprang up around it. Soon various industries like tannery, flour mills, and furniture and paper factories were crowding the industrial landscape of the area. Due to this industrial growth the town back then was also known as Bank Mills during 1863.
In 1850 an event occurred that redirected the path for Saratoga’s later developments. It was the discovery of Pacific Congress Springs by Jud Caldwell. The springs were named so because of its mineral content being similar to that of Congress Springs in Saratoga Springs, New York. And finally in 1865 the town got its present name Saratoga after the city in New York. Along this line a hotel named as the Congress Hall was also established to serve the incoming rush of tourists to the newly found Pacific Congress Springs. It was justly named after the famous resort hotel Congress Hall, situated in Saratoga Springs, New York. This Congress Hall of California attracted tourists and all the elites of Saratoga till it was consumed by fire in 1903. All of these events combining led Saratoga to be listed as a California Historical Landmark in 1950.
In line of these events Saratoga gradually turned towards being vastly an agricultural settlement along with the rest of the Santa Clara Valley. Orchards and vineyards began to outweigh the industrial significance of Saratoga. Gradually Saratoga’s colossal fruit production made it an agricultural trading post.
However, Saratoga’s evolution continued even further with the establishment of various spacious homes and palatial estates by the wealthy politicians and businessmen of the valley. Finally, the town reached its present state of being a beautiful residential community after its turn towards urban and suburban living during the Second World War and its subsequent incorporation in 1956. Gradually with time it has now become a very developed city for the Silicon Valley tech workers.
