A visual history of Castro Valley from the Ohlone Indians to the present day.
This engaging exhibition is a visual history of Castro Valley’s history curated by local Castro Valley Historian Lucille Lorge and Randy Vanderbilt. Learn about Castro Valley’s history from the Ohlone Indians to the present day. Learn about the Ohlone Jalquine and Seunen-e, learn about the Gold Rush era, Don Guillermo Castro, “Hayward’s Hotel,” the first Castro Valley schools, the “chicken coop library,” and more. Watch films, aerial footage, and home movies through the decades as we “Cruise the Boulevard through the early days of Castro Valley.” These fifteen minutes of film are selected outtakes of a collection of several hours of film that have been recently discovered and edited together for your enjoyment.
