Local history comes to life through the voices and memories of residents recorded for the Los Altos History Museum’s oral history project. The museum has made audio excerpts of 50 of the oral histories available to the public for online listening.

Since the 1990s, museum volunteers have been conducting interviews with residents, capturing their personal insights, experiences and reflections on past events and the community’s history.

“These oral histories are invaluable firsthand accounts of people and events that have significantly shaped our local  community,”said Sophia Abarca, the museum’s more.
