Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum
Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum in Sunnyvale
The colorful history of Sunnyvale is chronicled at this museum. Exhibits highlight the City’s founding families and agricultural development, from 1850s cherry, plum and pear orchards to today’s high-tech
industrial parks. Open Sunday 1- 4pm; Tuesday and Thursday 12 - 3:30

The Society has tried several times in the past 40 years to construct a museum. This year we were successful in creating an alliance with the City of Sunnyvale to anchor the project. The City is donating the land at the Orchard Heritage Park and has committed $500,000 in the form of a grant.

The Museum to be constructed will be a near replica of the Murphy Family home. The Murphy family were among the original settlers in the Santa Clara Valley and pre-dated the Donner party. The original home was constructed in Maine then taken apart and shipped around the horn through San Francisco bay and reconstructed in what is now Sunnyvale. Sunnyvale was originally called Murphy Station as the Murphy family donated land to extend the railroad and were awarded a train stop. The home was destroyed following a fire in 1961 and to make the right of way for what is now Central Expressway.
