Fremont area is a very historical place, from the Ice Age Fossils, Ohlone Culture, Mission San Jose, to the early settlers, to the railroads, to its nurseries, and even movie making. Learn through activities  and informational booths of the various organizations that are preserving this heritage. Each child will get a Passport so they  can learn about history through interacting with history groups.  If you are new to the area this is an excellent time to get to know this very historical city.
