Evergreen is a neighborhood and district of San Jose, California. Evergreen is bounded by Tully Road to the north, Capitol Expressway to the west, San Felipe Road to the south and the East Foothills neighborhood on the eastern edge.
Evergreen was the site of gliding experiments in 1911 by John J. Montgomery, an important figure in pioneering aeronautics. In his honor the local community has established John J. Montgomery Elementary School, Montgomery Park (City of San Jose).
Montgomery’s last glider, named “The Evergreen”, after the San Jose district, was restored by the Smithsonian Institution and is currently on display at the San Diego Air and Space Museum in San Diego, California.
