Happy Birthday, San Jose!

My family moved to the Berryessa district of San Jose in 1964. From the front window of my family home, I could see across the acres of orchards and farmland into downtown San Jose.

Many years have passed. San Jose, once the center of the "Valley of Heart's Delight" is now the capital of Silicon Valley. This past weekend, History San Jose sponsored a Fandango at the Peralta Adobe to celebrate the founding of San Jose in 1777. Happy Birthday, San Jose!
