Q: What is “Fremont
As part of our
year-long celebration, we will be
interviewing residents of Fremont to create
an Oral History.
The "Fremont Stories" project seeks to
highlight the many faces of Fremont.
Being a merger of five former small towns
into a single community with various ethnic,
socio-economic and age differences, Fremont
residents will learn more about what this
community was like, how it has changed, and
begin to discuss their hopes for the future.
We will collect personal stories from people
in the community, including new immigrants
and longtime residents, through oral history
interviews, to document the social history
of Fremont, before and after is was
incorporated. This project will include the
six areas of Fremont (Irvington, Niles,
Centerville, Mission San Jose, Warm Springs
and the Northern Plain from early 1900’s to
How will the stories
be presented to the community?
“Fremont Stories” will be presented to the
community through multimedia displays at the
Fremont 50th Anniversary Celebration called
"Celebrate Fremont @ the Park" on September
How can I get

Celebration, we are offering a FREE Oral
History Interviewer Workshop to train local
residents as interviewers. Everyone has a
story to bring Fremont history alive. You,

us capture these stories!
If you are

interviewee, or know someone that would make
a good interview participant, please

residents, or may have recently made Fremont
their home. We are interested in capturing
all facets of our community, and its growth
since the early days.
