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 Jose's 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.
The vacant parcel provides a unique opportunity to create a railroad themed community park. Celebrating the areaâs transshipment importance to San Joseâs agricultural and food processing past, the relocation of city designated historical landmarks will supplement educational exhibits in preserving this portion of our communityâs heritage for future generations.
