Who Are We?

The purpose, goals, and mission of an organization is what attracts persons of common interests to come together. The founders of the Milpitas Historical Society came up with three sentences that identified why the Society exists and what role it should play in our community. As a reminder of what the Society stands for, here is Article II from our bylaws.

  • “To promote the preservation of the history and cultural heritage of the area now encompassed within the City of Milpitas and surrounding areas through the collection, preservation, and dissemination of such material to its citizens and all interested parties so as to better understand our community.”
  • “To encourage the preservation of buildings, sites, and trees deemed to be historically and architecturally significant to the City of Milpitas.”
  • “To provide representation in regard to the City of Milpitas’ history and culture by means of oral, pictorial, or other methods prescribed by the Board of Directors, in an effort to provide an accurate and authentic interpretation of the history of Milpitas.”
