The Urquhart House on Glen Ridge Avenue was built in 1893 by C.F. Scammon and purchased by Dr. and Mrs. Richard Urquhart soon after construction.
Mrs. Urquhart was a founder and first president of the History Club in 1897. In 2001, a sighting of a “ghost” in a pink suit was reported by a babysitter.
In 1976 the house received the prestigious Bellringer award and in 1993 it was featured in the Museums of Los Gatos Historic Homes Tour.
