San Jose, CA, is a very old city, founded in 1777. Before white people came to this area, the Ohlone Indians lived here, along the Guadalupe River. They were peaceful Indians who lived in huts made from grasses. In the 18th century, Spaniards came to this area. They found bears, antelope and geese. They founded the Mission Santa Clara near the river. This mission was moved several times because the river flooded. It is now on the grounds of the University of Santa Clara.
