The Gilroy History Museum consists of the former “Gilroy Free Library” that was built in 1910.
The “Gilroy Free Library” obtained a large donation from Andrew Carnegie and was deemed as “Gilroy’s Carnegie Library Building”. In 1976, the library was reopened and converted into the Gilroy History Museum. Currently, the museum is managed by the Gilroy Historical Society.
