The First Integrated Dance Club in San Jose

The Palomar Ballroom, when it was opened in 1947, was a destination for many dancers and socialites in Santa Clara County.

What makes this location more significant was that it became the first integrated Ballroom in the city of San Jose, during the time of the Modern Civil Rights Movement.

Various celebrities made an appearance at this venue during the decades it was open. The Palomar Ballroom closed, fifteen years ago, in 2003.
