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.
We hope you can join us for the upcoming Historical Society meeting on Wednesday, September 14, at 7 pm at the Milpitas Library, for our first fall program, which will be about the development of the computer industry in our valley; our speaker will be Chris Garcia, an experienced curator and popular speaker from the Mountain View Computer Museum.
Please join us for the Milpitas Historical Society’s End-of-Summer Pot-Luck Picnic Luau, Sunday, October 2, 2016, 12:30 pm – 4:00 pm, at Kim Parker’s Last Word Ranch, 430 Evans Road, Milpitas.
