San Jose in Santa Clara County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Print Shop
Beginning in 1926, the MenMuir family lived in the house for almost forty-years. The house was moved to the History Park in 1972 and transformed into a nineteenth century print shop. It is typical of a building found in San Jose in the nineteenth century because of its “false front” appearance and distinctive corner decoration.

The James R. Perazzo family donated the building. This sign made possible by a generous grant from the Farrington Foundation.
