  • People of the Presidio(WNP Event)

    Nov 21, 2020 2:00pm-3:00pm (Saturday) at Virtual Online Event
    With 250 years of history to its credit, the Presidio of San Francisco has seen countless men and women pass through its gates and call it home. Now, on the heels of Veterans Day, our friend John Martini and our own Nicole Meldahl will highlight some of the most interesting characters they've "met" in their research.

    John is a San Francisco native who worked as a Park Ranger for the National Park Service for decades before retiring from the position of Military Curator for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Nicole first met John while working as an archivist and museum technician at the Park Archives and Records Center in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, where she was tasked with reconciling collections inherited from the former Presidio Army Museum. Combined, they're able to share a treasure trove of insider knowledge.

    Join them for an afternoon of incredible personal stories related to this Army post that is now one of our favorite local parks. This virtual Zoom event is free but pre-registration is required.

  • Chinese in the Sunset, Chinese in the Richmond

    Nov 14, 2020 12:00pm-1:00pm (Saturday) at Virtual Online Event
    As development on the west side increased in the 20th century, restrictive racial covenants preventing people of color from owning homes and operating businesses in the Sunset and Richmond Districts directly impacted the demographic makeup of the area.

    In 2017, the Chinese Historical Society of America (CHSA) launched a traveling exhibition called “Chinese in the Sunset” that shows how the 1960s civil rights movement and subsequent legislation removed those restrictions, how social attitudes changed, and how different perspectives within the community has created the vibrant Outer Sunset district we know today. Archival research and oral histories for a companion exhibition, “Chinese in the Richmond,” are currently underway with support from Western Neighborhoods Project.

    Join us via Zoom on Saturday, November 14, 2020 at 12:00PM as we sit down with Palma You and Steve Haines from CHSA for a discussion on what they discovered in the Sunset, what we’re working to reveal in the Richmond District, and how your story can be a part of this history.

    This virtual event is made possible by the California Humanities through the “Humanities for All” Project Grant WNP was awarded in May 2020, and a foundational grant from the San Francisco Office of Economic and Workforce Development via the Invest in Neighborhoods Project.

    Tickets are free but you must pre-register. The event will also be live-streamed to the Western Neighborhoods Project Facebook Page.

  • VIRTUAL Portola Drive History Walk(WNP Event)

    Nov 5, 2020 6:00pm-7:00pm (Thursday) at Virtual Online Event
    Join us for a virtual guided walking tour along Portola Drive led by long-time WNP Board Member Richard Brandi.

    Portola Drive was part of the original Corbet Road that traversed the slopes of Twin Peaks from Castro Street to Sloat Boulevard. Portola was widened successively over the years but the current street is the result of the efforts taken during the 1950s. To squeeze in four traffic lanes, a parking strip, and a center median, the city bought all the houses with one exception on the northwest side of Portola from Waitham to Dorchester Way. Houses in St Francis Wood were pushed back or turned on their lots or vanished without trace.

    Richard Brandi has been fascinated with house moving and has traced the whereabouts of houses that were scattered across San Francisco, Daly City and Colma. On this tour, we will see how houses in St Francis Wood were changed, see the vacant land north of St. Francis Wood where houses once stood and then hike to seven houses that were relocated over the objections of the Miraloma Park Association (they didn't want "old” houses plunked down in their mid-century paradise).

    Sponsored by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development via the Invest in Neighborhoods Project courtesy of District 1 Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer. This event is free but pre-registration is required to receive your Zoom link.

  • VIRTUAL Ashbury Heights & Terrace History Walk(WNP Event)

    Oct 24, 2020 10:00am-12:00pm (Saturday) at Virtual Online Event
    COVID-19 UPDATE: This event has been changed from in-person to virtual due to an abundance of caution.

    San Francisco is not known for its picturesque suburban streets, landscaping, detached houses, and setbacks to convey the feeling of living in a park. But between 1905 and 1924, thirty-six such neighborhoods “called residence parks” were proposed or built in the City. Some of the better-known ones are St Francis Wood, Forest Hill and Sea Cliff but there were many others.

    WNP Board member Richard Brandi wrote THE book about them (due the end of the year by McFarland Publishing), and he will lead you through Ashbury Heights and Ashbury Terrace (aka Pemberton steps) for a physically distanced and refreshing tour.

    Sponsored by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development via the Invest in Neighborhoods Project courtesy of District 1 Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer. This event is free but pre-registration is required. You will receive the Zoom link in an email after registration.

    Nicole Meldahl will read classic and history-themed children’s stories live the first Wednesday of every month. We began this series on Facebook Live in May and, after a month off, are shifting to Zoom! Fun for kids of all ages, even if you’re just a kid at heart. This month we’re reading a 1950s classic: “Fly High, Fly Low” by Don Freeman, recommended for ages 3-5.

    Sid the pigeon is very choosy about finding just the right home in the magnificent city of San Francisco. And find it he does, in the loop of a huge “B” in an electric sign high up on a skyscraper. Sid’s view of San Francisco is without equal. So Sid asks the lovely dove Midge to share his home. But one morning, while Midge is taking her turn sitting on two eggs, disaster strikes. A truck comes and workers take down the letters on the skyscraper one-by-one. Winner of the Caldecott Honor, “Fly High, Fly Low” is a heartwarming story of two birds making a home—and then making another one—in one of America’s great cities.

    What’s a California miner to do when gold dust sifts right out of his holey pockets? With such a raggedly wardrobe, he may as well be mining in the vanilla (that is, his birthday suit)! Good thing Levi Strauss is out west, ready with his needle and a head full of bright ideas. With some quick thinking, quicker stitching, and handy arithmetic, Levi keeps all the gold rushers clothed—and becomes a modern American hero. A Wild West tale, "Levi Strauss Gets a Bright Idea" celebrates creativity, innovation, and the ubiquitous item that fills the closets of grateful jean wearers worldwide.

  • WNP Story Time!(WNP Event)

    Aug 5, 2020 4:30pm-5:30pm (Wednesday) at Virtual Online Event
    Nicole Meldahl will read classic and history-themed children’s stories live the first Wednesday of every month. We began this series on Facebook Live in May and, after a month off, are shifting to Zoom! Fun for kids of all ages, even if you’re just a kid at heart. This month we’ll feature Herb Caen’s classic “The Cable Car and the Dragon,” recommended for ages 4-8 years.

    This is the rollicking tale of the adventures of Charlie, the youngest cable car. Only sixty years old, he is tired of the same old rut. One night as he’s puffing himself up Nob Hill, he hears a lot of excitement down below: Chinese New Year! Suddenly, Charlie takes a right turn on Jackson Street, rather than the left he has taken for sixty years, and he finds himself in the middle of the parade. There he meets a friendly dragon named Chu Chin Chow, who is bored with his job. Charlie treats Chu to a cable car ride that looks as if it will end in a disastrous plunge into the San Francisco Bay—unless a miracle occurs.

    Sponsored by the Sunset Heights Association of Responsible People (SHARP) as part of our Education Initiative. All books were purchased at our favorite independent bookseller in the Richmond District, Green Apple Books. This event is free (but donations are appreciated) and pre-registration is required. A Zoom link will be emailed to you after registration.

  • Film Screening: 5 Blocks by Dan Goldes and Robert Cortlandt(WNP Event)

    Apr 21, 2020 6:30pm-8:30pm (Tuesday) at Western Neighborhoods Project
    Market Street was once the grandest boulevard in America. No stranger to civic celebrations since the 1900s and just minutes from City Hall, the area fell into decline and became home to the poorest population in San Francisco. The neighborhood is currently undergoing its most dramatic change in 50 years as tech companies, their employees, and the restaurants and stores that cater to them confront the realities of a neighborhood that still houses some of our most marginalized residents.

    WNP will host a screening of 5 Blocks, a film by Dan Goldes and Robert Cortlandt who used our OpenSFHistory archive as a research tool to explore the complex questions of income disparity, changing demographics, and the very nature of place as they look at contemporary Market Street.

    Join us to see how the past contextualizes the present, meet filmmaker Dan Goldes, and enjoy curated historical images of Market Street from OpenSFHistory. Tickets are $20 for non-members, $10 for members. Light snacks and refreshments provided.

    Thousands of volunteers came from all over the country to train at the Presidio of San Francisco during the Spanish-American War in 1898. These troops spilled into the Richmond District on land owned by the Crocker Estate Company, which offered up the area between today's Geary Boulevard, Fulton Street, Arguello Street and Sixth Avenue for what came to be known as Camp Merritt.

    In honor of Veterans' Day, come see rare photographs as Amanda Williford, Curator at the Park Archives and Records Center in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA), and Nicole Meldahl discuss the history of this Outside Lands Army encampment, as well as WNP's recent collaboration with the GGNRA on OpenSFHistory.
