The Mountain View Historical Association was established over 60 years ago and currently has 324 members. The Association is dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of Mountain View by gathering data and cooperating with other organizations to promote and publish the history of this area.

The Association meets four times a year on the first Sundays in February, May, August and November at 1:00 PM. Our meetings are held in the Historic Adobe Building located at 157 Moffett Boulevard in Mountain View and are free and open to the public.

The first Sunday in August is our annual BBQ and raffle. The other quarterly meetings are a mixture of Historical Association business and guest speakers who often augment their presentations with Visuals (videos, slideshows, etc.) on a variety of topics pertaining to local history.

President's Message - By Candace Bowers - MVHA President

The Association is grieving the loss of our friend and neighbor Patricia, Pat, Figueroa, who died on June 24. Pat is survived by her husband, John, their two sons; and three grandchildren.

Pat and John moved to Mountain View in 1968—long-time residents by any standards, yet surprisingly “recent” because Pat was one of those people who seemed to have even deeper roots in our city, as if she had been born and raised here. A more dedicated community leader would be hard to imagine. Pat not only loved her community, she helped to build it. Serving on numerous local and regional committees, including two terms as Mountain View’s mayor, Pat worked to make Mountain View a better place to live.

A celebration of Pat’s life will be held at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts on Sunday, August 7 at 3:00 p.m.

Although you might have noted that the Association had originally planned to hold our annual summer meeting on the above date, needless to say, we will reschedule our event for later in the month. We hope you will be able to join us on Sunday, August 28 for our traditional summer BBQ at the Adobe. As always, we appreciate an opportunity to come together, to share memories, and to celebrate everything Mountain View.

- Candace Bowers, MVHA President
