The San Benito County Historical Society is participating in Silicon Valley Gives again this year!

Silicon Valley Gives is an online giving day to support nonprofit organizations in San Mateo, Santa Clara and San Benito counties.

Museum Temporarily Closed on Weekends
At this time, we are unable to find a docent who will volunteer their time to keep our doors open. Please call 831.635.0335 to schedule an appointment if you would like to visit the museum. If you are interested in filling this position (membership required) please contact the Museum Director (frasha95023 at gmail dot com)  

 

 

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.
