Event 14: Historic Gilroy Yamato Hot Springs Walking Tour & Lunch

Hot Springs Walking Tour

Wednesday November 11, 2020 from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM

Join us for a visit to Gilroy Hot Springs, discovered in the early 1860s by Mexican shepherd Francisco Cantua. It was developed into a destination mineral water resort by H. K. Sakata. After WWII, it became a healing transitional home for Japanese-Americans from Internment Camps. It is now a National Park Service's National Historic Site and California Historic Landmark. Our expert guide will take us on a 90 minute walking tour of the grounds to see ten different historic sites including the mineral springs, shrine, bath houses and Grand Hotel. We end with an included group picnic lunch. Space is limited so reserve your spot now.

Location: Gilroy CA 95020
