Fort Mason History Walk WNP Event

Aug 26, 2023 10:00am-12:00pm (Saturday)

Join historian and retired park ranger John Martini for an exploration of Fort Mason’s shady walkways and discover the complex history of this tiny military post. Along the way we’ll see San Francisco’s earliest “subdivision” - a group of snug Gold Rush cottages - plus 1860s army barracks and residences, a Civil War cannon battery, World War II troop embarkation piers, and the site of the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition’s “Joy Zone.”

Our journey begins at 10:00am and takes about 2 hours. Grade: moderate, includes several flights of stairs. Please note that while we at WNP love animals, we can no longer allow dogs on our walking tours, in order to accommodate the needs of all our guests. Thank you for understanding.

Please register through Eventbrite. $10 for WNP members (and we absorb your Eventbrite fees) and $20 for non-members. The super secret meeting location will be emailed to you when tickets are purchased. The walk is limited to 30 people.
