Once more, we took an Afternoon Amble with the South Bay Striders – today’s walk was the half of the Los Gatos Year-Round Event that we didn’t walk last week. It wove through nice residential neighborhoods with a mix of old and new houses.
Some of the older houses in town have been designated as Bellringers – there are 100 in all, designated in three tranches (in 1976, 1977, and 1987). Our route took us past houses in all three categories, so we got to see all three versions of the award.
There’s a complete listing (with photos) of the Bellringers as part of the Los Gatos Local History Research Collection, which I discovered while writing this entry. It’s amazing how much information you can find with a walk and a simple search!
