Mural on the Sidewalk

Seventy miles from San Francisco there was a little train stop by the name of "Huntington" but no one called the place Huntington.  The major ranch at Huntington was owned by Miram Morgan Hill.   People riding the train wanting to get off at this stop would say, "Drop me off at Morgan Hill's place".   And the city was eventually incorporated with the name of Morgan Hill.  
The city has a very rural past.

Over the years, the city started having a downtown.

Today downtown area has business but still retains some of the rural characteristics of having an open farmers' market.

There are open stages for entertainment on Friday nights during the summer.

There is a skateboard park for youth residents.

And there are two dog parks for families and more matured residents.
