Description
Records of the Palm Haven Tract Association, an organization of early residents in the historic subdivision of Palm Haven on the southern edge of San Jose.
Background
Palm Haven was developed on the southern edge of San Jose in the early 20th century as an incorporated city and planned neighborhood. It featured extensive palm tree plantings, with many homes designed by architect Frank D. Wolfe, and large garden lots. Property owners were also part owners in an incorporated entity responsible for all the public spaces of the development, funded by a tax levy. Palm Haven voted to be annexed into the city of San Jose in 1922. It was declared a Historic Conservation Area in 1987.
