History of our County–Highlights from our Past

Step back in time and revisit some of the highlights of San Benito County as presented through historical photographs.

The San Benito County Historical Society will present a brief history of our County on Wednesday, March 28th at the Wapple House Museum, 498 Fifth Street. The presentation will begin at 7:00 pm, and we invite the public to join us--discover the answer to these questions and more.

  • How did the Gold Rush shape our history?
  • What has changed along your commute on Highway 25 in the last 100 years?
  • What is a Wiggle Tail?
  • How did Hollister change after the 1906 earthquake?
  • What year was Downtown Hollister covered in a blanket of white?

Just because you grew up in San Benito County, doesn't mean you know all the answers!

Join us for a look back at some of the highlights of our past and enjoy some refreshments after the show.
