The Mountain View Historical Association was established over 50 years ago and currently has 299 members. The Association is dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of Mountain View by gathering data and cooperating with other organizations to promote and publish the history of this area.

The Association meets four times a year on the first Sundays in February, May, August and November at 2:00 PM. Our meetings are held in the Historic Adobe Building located at 157 Moffett Boulevard in Mountain View and are free and open to the public.

The first Sunday in August is our annual BBQ and raffle. The other quarterly meetings are a mixture of Historical Association business and guest speakers who often augment their presentations with Visuals (videos, slideshows, etc.) on a variety of topics pertaining to local history.

President's Message - By Patricia Figueroa - MVHA President

Hi Everyone,

It is time for our annual BBQ and as you see this year we are having the theme of "Linda's Burgers". Who can resist an authentic "Parisian Burger"? We have even special ordered the correct type of buns and Linda herself (who may be joining us!) is providing the recipe for the "special sauce". And yes, there will also be some "special fries". The BBQ will be a piece of history for the taste buds.

It seems right to bring a little piece of Mid-Century Mountain View history to our annual BBQ as we celebrate the 60th of the Mountain View Historical Association. In 1954 this community recognized the need to preserve "yesterday" for "today". I'd like to take this opportunity to say "Thank You" to all the Board Members past and present for the time and effort you have given to this organization.

A very special "farewell" to Barbara Kinchen, our Historical Data Chair, who is retiring from weekly volunteer hours at the History Center in the Mountain View Public Library. Barbara is a longtime MVHA volunteer and has served as official City Historian since 1994. Barbara, you will be missed!

Hope to see everyone at our BBQ on August 3rd!

- Pat Figueroa, MVHA President
