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, May 10, at 7 pm at the Milpitas Library, for a presentation about the John Muir, the father of our country’s National Parks, and about his historic home and ranch in at the John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez. We are meeting this time in the library’s cozy Children’s Activity Room. Hope to see you there!
Stay tuned for more information about the Milpitas International Festival and Barbeque, which is coming up on Saturday and Sunday, May 20 and 21, 2017, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, in a brand new location on Alder Drive (between McCarthy Blvd. and Tasman Dr.). In the next newsletter, see how our Society will be participating in it.
