About the Museum:

The museum is located in the heart of what used to be the town of Niles, before it became part of Fremont in 1956.  The once-sleepy town rivaled Hollywood as the movie capital of the world in 1914 when a young Charlie Chaplin starred in a series of films shot in Niles, including the classic, The Tramp.
