Castro Valley History in Film

Submitted By Marcess Owings

Do you like looking at old film footage? Then you don't want to miss this program with Randy Vanderbilt, a local history buff who has collected many hours of rarely seem film footage of Castro Valley. The event is scheduled for Saturday, June 29 at 2 p.m. and will be held at the Castro Valley Library.

Vanderbilt has strong family ties to the Castro Valley community. His grandfather and three great uncles came to California in the early 1940s, and together they founded Vanderbilt Family Builders. The brothers started building homes in Castro Valley during the post-World War II housing boom and literally helped build the East Bay community into the town it is today. Vanderbilt himself was born and raised in Castro Valley and now heads the family business.

This event is in partnership with the Castro Valley Library. The Hayward Area Historical Society preserves and interprets the diverse history of the Hayward, Castro Valley, and San Lorenzo area through educational programs, history exhibitions, and the preservation of historic sites and artifacts.
