100 Years of the Twin Peaks Tunnel: WNP Member Symposium WNP Event

Feb 15, 2018 7:00pm-9:00pm (Thursday) at WNP Home for History

Join us for a special member symposium on the centennial of the opening of the Twin Peaks Tunnel. On February 3, 1918, Mayor Rolph drove the first MUNI streetcar from Eureka Valley to West Portal. Over the next decade, the Forest Hill, St. Francis Wood, Ingleside Terraces, West Portal, and Parkside neighborhoods saw hundreds of new homes built. Was it the tunnel, the rise of the automobile, or just a booming economy?

Come hear about the conception, construction, and legacy of streetcar tunnel that still carries thousands of San Franciscans on the K-Ingleside, L-Taraval, and M-Oceanview routes.
