Early California Pioneers

The Bascoms arrived in San Jose in 1849. Their residence and boarding house, Slapjack Hall, was a center of activity and grandma sewed the famous blue tent used as both a school and first protestant church. Dr. Bascom practiced medicine but preferred farming. Grandma took as boarders members of the first state legislature. Her wonderful record of early life in San Jose appeared in a national publication in 1887, "The Overland Monthly." They relocated to their farm at Somerville Lodge in Santa Clara where Bascom Avenue is today.
