The Way to San José celebrates nearly 100 years of Rotary in San Jose with a focus on transportation in Santa Clara Valley -- from the Native Americans to the new expansion of the San Jose Airport and to the BART and high speed rail systems of the future.  The museum, a concept of immediate past Rotary president Rod Diridon, Sr., was funded by the Rotary Club of San José and implemented by History San Jose supported by the California Trolley and Railroad Corporation, and the Mineta Transportation Institute.

The Way to San José exhibit includes transportation-related historic photographs and artifacts.  Presented will be graphic mementos depicting the Native American’s foot travel and canoe to the Spanish Californio and early American settlers’ horseback and covered wagon migrations, through the early trolley and railroad periods to the current highway and airports including the emerging modern rail systems.
