Heritage Wall

Become a permanent part of San Benito County history by supporting the Heritage Wall.  By donating to this campaign, you will receive a plaque with the name of a loved one, your family name, or your personal name engraved in a piece of the original Dance Hall board to be permanently displayed in the soon to be rebuilt Dance Hall at the Historic Park.

For more information and to give, visit our Heritage Wall page.

This is a wonderful video showing a downtown parade circa 1942.  See if you can recognize many of the downtown buildings and landmarks.

Of course, if anyone out there has any additional information they would like to share about this parade, please let us know.
