The Milpitas Historical Society was formed in 1980 by 79 residents of Milpitas who felt that much of our city’s historic heritage was in danger of being lost. Soon after the society was formed, it began to publish a monthly newsletter for members called The Milpitas Muse. The name came from the muses  of Greek Mythology, one of whom, Clio, is usually associated with history. The Milpitas Muse is available with a paid membership to the society, but some of the information, such as our monthly programs, is available on this website.
