WNP Events Calendar
We're happy to appear at street fairs, festivals, and other community events to show old photos of the neighborhood, give out free booklets, and chat with people about west SF history.
We also do slide shows and lectures for community groups, classrooms, preschools, clubs, historical societies, and other organizations who'd like to hear more about topics like the Sunset district, the old Rancho San Miguel, earthquake shacks, and "Carville".
Special walks for WNP members and their guests occur at least quarterly. Past walks have included Lands End, Ocean Avenue, the Parkside District, and Forest Hill. Join the Western Neighborhoods Project and come learn more about these fascinating San Francisco neighborhoods.

Western Neighborhoods Project at California Genealogical SocietyCome and hear Woody LaBounty, San Francisco history expert, story teller, story collector and founder, talk about The Western Neighborhoods Project and its plans for a collection of more than twenty-five cabinets of privately owned historical images. Accepting stewardship in early 2013, WNP has begun to catalog, digitize, preserve, and make thousands of images available to the public, both physically and online. A pilot project covering a small portion of the collection with images of the Cliff House, Sutro Baths, Sutro Heights, and Ocean Beach areas, is the first online installment.
