The Galindo Home Museum opened for the holiday season beautifully decorated inside and out.  Hot apple cider and cookies were served to the many visitors on Sunday and Wednesday afternoons in December.

Members of the Galindo family lived in the house since it was built in 1854.  Ruth Galindo passed away in 1999 and left the house to the City of Concord and all the items in the house to the Concord Historical Society.  The Society kept everything in storage since that time and finally moved everything back in to the house after it was refurbished in 2012.

The Society obtained the Galindo property from the City in 2010 and immediately started refurbishing the house to bring it back to its former beauty.  The interior was painted & wallpapered, the floors refinished and plumbing and electrical systems brought up to date. Members cleaned and polished the furnishings and replaced them where they belonged.  An ADA lift was installed and the property made handicapped friendly.

The house is open for tours on Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. To arrange a tour on a day other than Sunday, call 925-827-3380.
