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.
Please join us for the upcoming Milpitas Historical Society meeting on Wednesday, June 14, at 6:30 pm (early this month) in the Children’s Activity Room at the Milpitas Library, for showing of a recently released film about San Jose’s history: Changing Boundaries: A History of San Jose. We are meeting earlier this time because the film is an hour and 18 minutes long, and we want to have some time to enjoy treats and conversation afterwards. Hope to see you there!
The Milpitas Historical Society will be sponsoring its annual Community Tour (free and open to the public) on Saturday, June 17th. This free bus tour is designed to acquaint the community with historic sites in Milpitas. Details are listed on the Events page.
