In 1854, Pioneers arrived to Santa Clara, via a wagon, and formed the Santa Teresa Ranch within the town of Edenville. Descendants of the ranch owned the land for generations, until their last owner donated the ranch to the Santa Clara County Government. The County turned the ranch into the Marital Cottle Park and the last owner of the Land passed away a day before the opening of the park to the public.
