On Monday, November 13, 2017 Milpitas Historical Society Board members were treated to a special tour of the not-yet-open interior of the Alviso Adobe building by the City of Milpitas. It was arranged and led by Milpitas Recreation Services Manager Renee Lorentzen, who opened the restricted premises, showed board members around, and explained what furnishings and objects will be placed in the different rooms and the eras that they represent. The restoration and upgrades will be taking place over the coming year.
