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.

WNP EventLone Mountain Member Walk
Sep 20, 2014 1:00pm-2:30pm (Saturday)
This walk, led by John Freeman, will survey the historic cemetery boundaries from the stunning heights of Lone Mountain; as well as identifying other landmarks of the western landscape. We will pass by the boyhood home of a U.S. Supreme Court Justice, and visit landmarks on the University of San Francisco campus, including St. Ignatius Church, which celebrates its centennial this year. The neighborhood is a fun mixture of architectural styles, with rows of Victorian houses, Romeo Flats and later fill-ins. We will also observe a native California tree that is seldom seen in our urban environment.
The walk includes steep stairs and sidewalks.
The tour, which lasts about 90 minutes, is free but limited to 30 WNP members and their guests. WNP Members, to reserve your spot, use the Contact Form or leave a message at (415)661-1000 with the number in your party, and we will reply with the meeting location. -
