The Landmark Project: CHL# 888

CHL# 888 HAYES MANSION

Jay Orley and Everis A. Hayes built this Mission Revival style mansion, designed by George W. Page in 1904. The Hayes brothers were early San Jose Mercury publishers, prominent valley politicians, and were actively involved in establishing the Santa Clara Valley fruit industry. The mansion consists of 62 rooms, 11 fireplaces, and was paneled in over a dozen different woods.

Also on the US National Register of Historic Places.

Christine’s Note: This was a surprise bonus.  I had booked my room here for a business trip without even realizing it was on the landmark list!

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
