Martinez History
The History Center is not basically a "museum" or a place where yesterday's artifacts sit mute in dusty corners. Rather, it is designed

records that tell the story of our past.

Third Saturday of each Month - 10:00am to 2:00 pm

Alumni members and their spouses donated 
their time and expertise from carpentry, to plumbing, to gardening, to computer programming, and spent  hundreds of hours outfitting the museum.     A ll pictures and  objects are identified and catalogued and the information stored in a computer.  The museum is staffed by  Alumni members who also  conduct tours.   The museum was dedicated and opened for visitors September 22, 1990 and is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  More...

John Muir National Historic Site

  John Muir

Fruit Rancher, Family Man, Writer... Father of the National Park Service!

John Muir played many roles in his life, all of which helped him succeed in his role as an advocate for Nature. As America's most famous naturalist and conservationist, Muir fought to protect the wild places he loved, places we can still visit today. Muir's writings convinced the U.S. government to protect Yosemite, Sequoia, Grand Canyon and Mt. Rainier as national parks.
