Among the several homes displayed in History San Jose's History Park is the Chiechi House. The house was constructed around 1880 by John and Jane Campbell and was sold in 1913 to Michele Chiechi. The Chiechis were prominent orchardists in the valley who grew walnuts and apricots. The Urbarger House, once owned by "forty-niner" David Umbarger, displays a "kitchen garden" behind the house. Kitchen gardens were commonly found at houses throughout the Santa Clara Valley.
Originally located in downtown San Jose, the Pacific Hotel was opened in 1880 by Charles Schiele. The replica in History Park was built to act as the headquarters of the historical museum and the main floor is home to an exhibit gallery and the O'Brien's Ice Cream Parlor and Candy Shop.
Dashaway Stables, built in 1888, held horses and carriages that residents of San Jose could either rent or hire. The stables were also a place for people to house their horses and have them fed. The replica Dashaway Stables were constructed in History Park in 1975. The office of one the Santa Clara Valley's first physicians, Dr. Henry Hulme Warburton, was the first building that was relocated to the park.
