History San José members are part of a vibrant community of people who value the history of San José and the Santa Clara Valley.
Members make a special investment in History San José to support education and outreach programs for more than 10,000 students a year, the ongoing collecting and conserving of the largest regional collection in California, and our wonderful gathering places for the entire community – at History Park and the downtown Gonzales/Peralta Adobe — Carmel & Thomas Fallon House Historic Site.
