The observatory is managed by the University of California Observatories, with headquarters on the University of California, Santa Cruz campus, where its scientific staff moved in the mids. It is named after James Lick. Lick Observatory is the world's first permanently occupied mountain-top observatory. Lick additionally requested that Santa Clara County construct a "first-class road" to the summit, completed in To keep the grade below 6. Tradition maintains that this road has exactly turns This is approximately correct, although uncertainty as to what should count as a turn makes precise verification impossible.

After more than a century of service, the Lick Observatory is still first and foremost a scientific research institution, run by the University of California at Santa Cruz.
Built between and , the Lick Observatory was the dream of astronomer James Lick, who saw the great scientific benefit of having a staff that could live on site to observe the stars anytime of the night. Unfortunately Lick would not survive to see the completion of his observatory, but his body was buried under the site of the first telescope at the site.
