San Jose Facts

Second boundaries of San José:

To move to higher and drier ground that would not flood so much, the Pueblo de San José de Guadalupe moved a little south in 1797 to a new part of the land. Sometimes thought of as New Town, the boundaries were from just north of present day St. John Street to midway between San Carlos Street and Auzerais Avenue, Market Street, to the westerly area of San Pedro Street.
