The most historic streets in San Jose

If you love San Jose there is a group on Facebook that you have to follow. The Facebook group San Jose History has some of the best stories and information about San Jose that I have found on the internet. 

A recent post has listed information about a ton of the streets in San Jose and how they got their name.

Here are some of the highlights.

  • Forbes Drive – Named after James Alexander Forbes who owned the New Almaden Mines and helped to establish Santa Clara College.
  • Mariposa – Named after Mariposa Grove for the Giant Sequoias found in Yosemite National Park.
  • Tully Road – Named after John Tully who owned several thousand acres in Evergreen Valley
  • Woz Way – Named after Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak after donating the money and refusing the naming rights to the San Jose Children’s museum the city honored him by renaming the street in front of the museum after him.
