You are ALL cordially invited to join us at the San Jose History Park Letterpress Printers Guild meeting, usually from 10 am - 12 noon on the 2nd Saturday of every month.This is when the members of the History Park Letterpress Printers Guild meet as a group to discuss the operation of the letterpress print shop in History Park, share letterpress "show and tell," and network with other letterpress printers. Guests are always welcome!
Following the meeting, join us in the shop for a free tour and lots of letterpress fun. Then tour the rest
of the recreated Victorian Village known as History Park. Ride the Trolley through town, have lunch or an
ice cream at the turn of the century hotel eatery at O'Brien's, and enjoy the rest of the restored town and
beautiful grounds outside...including the many fairs and festivals held on the grounds each year.

the San Jose area. The park is located at 1650 Senter Rd., San Jose, CA 95112 at the corner of Senter Rd. and Phelan.

The outside double doors to the meeting room are located just beyond the print shop building, on the side of the Hotel Building. Or, if you go around the corner to the main entrance to the Hotel, the inside door to the meeting room is in the back and to the right of the main lobby of the Hotel.

The Pasetta House is just south of the Print Shop across the street....and directly across the street from the Trolley Barn.
