Our History, Our Story – San Jose

Communities, like people, have a story to share. Their history is what makes them who they are or what they are. Each City has a story worth discussing. What are the stories within San Jose that are not generally known but have lessons for what we are experiencing today?

Through “Our History, Our Story – San Jose”, I hope to bring out these unique stories from San Jose’s history to engage with residents so they can find meaning in the place they live. By connecting people with these stories, we can create a more engaged community that will seek to expand on the stories from our past and create new stories and opportunities for our future. Through this, we can create strong communities that are connected and more willing to work together.
