Remember Summers Gone By at Our Latest Pop-Up Exhibit at History Park
Summer is just around the corner and our curators have created a new pop-up exhibit with objects and ephemera from HSJ’s collection.
As leisure time increased during the post-World War II boom, so did the number of South Bay residents seeking to beat the summer heat on the beaches of Santa Cruz. Check it out for yourself in the Pacific Hotel Lobby at History Park.

History San José Welcomes Our Newest Citizens
Last month, History San José hosted a naturalization ceremony administered by City of San Jose and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the Peralta Adobe — Fallon House Historic Site, where 35 people representing 15 countries were sworn in as U.S. citizens.
San Jose’s City Manager, Norberto Duenas, an immigrant himself who came to the U.S. from Cuba, gave a moving address following the swearing in ceremony. We were honored to be a part of this special moment and proudly welcome our newest citizens! Check out more photos from the ceremony.
