Surrounded by rolling hills in Santa Clara County, the unincorporated township of San Martin is a beautiful, rural ranch style community that takes its name from St. Martin of Tours, the patron saint of early pioneer Martin Murphy, who built the first Catholic church in the area. Like neighboring Morgan Hill and Gilroy, San Martin is a large producer of garlic, mushrooms, and wine. It is also home to the volunteer-run Wings of History aviation museum, located next to San Martin Airport. Santa Clara County changed the facility’s name from South County Airport in January 2014.
