Washington Township Museum of Local History
Backstory and Context
The lease provides for the preservation and protection of the city’s 18, 19, & 20th century heritage for the 21st century. To encourage the interest of the local citizens in Fremont’s history, and to provide a place for students and enthusiasts to visit and conduct research. The building will serve both as a museum and a library for historical books and documents.
After many months of cleaning, inventory, filing and cataloging, the members of the two historical societies began a series of meetings to formally organize a museum structure, with bylaws and a Board of Directors. Once these goals were accomplished the Board of Directors proceeded with plans to create the best little museum in Alameda County." 1
