Walking tour of Mission San Jose
Submitted By the Washington Township Museum of Local History
Join us Sunday, February 12 as we walk and learn the history of the land that the Ohlone College - Fremont Campus sits on. Our discussion begins in 1850, when the land came under American control as California became the 31st state of the United States of America.
Kelsey Camello will be leading the group and discuss the history of the land - noting wineries, beautiful estates, orchards, amusements parks, and more. Some of the surrounding neighborhood history may also be reviewed.
Come out, learn local history, and exercise all at once! Tour-goers will meet at 12 pm in the museum parking lot - 190 Anza Street (across from Ohlone College). The tour will continue rain or shine, so bring an umbrella. This event is free.
After the tour, those attending will be treated to special open hours at the Louie Meager Art Gallery at the Ohlone Campus. The gallery is currently displaying a timeline-style history of the land Ohlone sits on, extending back to indigenous times.
This event is sponsored by the Washington Township Museum of Local History.
