One of the largest tanneries in the world, the Eberhard Tannery was part of Santa Clara's economic life for over 100 years. Originally called the Santa Clara Tannery, in 1867 it was purchased by John J. Eberhard from his Father-In-Law. By 1904 the Eberhard Tanning Co. was doing a million dollar-a-year business and had gained renown throughout the world for its fine leather products. Demolished in 1953, today its site is part of the Santa Clara University campus.
