The Hayward Center for History and Culture


We have museum that celebrates all things Hayward. It is called the Hayward Center for History and Culture. The first floor is the Museum for things are Hayward, the second floor is the archives. One thing about Hayward is that it was really rural and it was an agricultural area with a lot of farms and ranches until the last 50 years:

The cornerstone from the original Hayward High

A driver's uniform in the early 1900's
An original saddle made by Henry Rowell. The leading saddle maker of the 1930's-1950's
The Western Pacific sign for the railroad
1940's police uniform
Hunt's Tomato Juice. Hunt's Cannery was a backbone of the Hayward economy of early Hayward
1927 Hayward Grammar School Graduation Program
The vehicle that was old Hayward
Another backbone of the old Hayward economy 
Varsity sweaters of local high schools (from left) Mt.Eden, Sunset (closed 1990), Hayward
Megaphones from Hayward High and Tennyson High (where I went)
Wrestling Program from 1913
A plaque from Bud Harrleson, who played for the 1969 Miracle Mets, thanking Hayward for the day in his honor
Hope you enjoyed our little museum.

    1. The tomato juice is Hunt's which was one of the backbone's of Hayward. When I was a small child you could smell tomato's in the air in my neighborhood.
