This valley we live in is filled with historical surprises.
Did you know that this valley was called Valle de San Jose and it was the principal pasture for the Mission San Jose?
Over 30,000 head of cattle roamed the hills eating the grass.
The round up would take place in a valley called Tassajera (which meant bowl-shaped) once a year and the meat, hides, tallow and the bones from the cattle would brought to the Mission. There it would be processed and then taken to ships waiting in the Bay. The meat and other by-products were sent to many parts of the world.
Find out more about this intriguing valley by visiting the Museum on Main. See the exhibts and visit the books store to buy books that give you all kinds of history about where we live.
