This original exhibit explores our diverse communities over time, drawing on the Los Altos History Museum’s Oral History Collection.

Towns and cities hold many communities that connect, overlap, work together and disagree, whether made up of friends or neighbors, a religious community, an ethnic community, or a community of like-minded people. These communities (and the people who create them) have driven historical change in our area over time, and they are in turn changed by the tide of history.
