The picture book Rick carried helped make the stories come alive. We also got a quick private tour of the beautifully restored Granada Theater before continuing to the Granary building on Depot Street. Local architects Charles Weston and Leslie Miles remodeled the iconic Granary to become one of South County’s first LEED Gold Certified green buildings. This brought us full circle back to the Parking Garage and the end of the tour. Our guides, Clay and Rick, were knowledgeable and open to all of our questions. The Walking Tour is a great way to contextualize our place in history and all the changes happening in Morgan Hill. Take this “walk back in time.” It is priceless and a great introduction to our heritage. Morgan Hill Historical Society Historic Downtown Walking Tour Second Saturday of every month 10 am to noon Guided 1.5-mile tour.
