|Museum Update - January 25, 2010|
On Monday January 25, 2010, CTRC leadership met with San Jose District 7 Councilwoman Madison Nguyen to discuss a potential museum location near Kelley Park. Click here for more information about the museum location.
Situated between two city owned parcels, Municipal Stadium and the main city corporation yard, the privately owned 5 acre site is located across Senter Road from History San Jose at the south end of Kelley Park.
Because of their importance to San Joseâs industrial heritage, both the roundhouse and turntable had been previously designated city historical landmarks.
This selected museum location would enable complimentary programming activities with existing relocated city landmarks at History San Jose.
Plans are underway to enlist the fiscal and political support to protect the property and eventually fund the project.
