SF History Night | Pacific Heights

The San Francisco History Association hosts monthly talks which explore our city’s enchanting history in depth.

Each month, a local history expert hosts a themed talk usually accompanied by a slide show with light refreshments.

Discover this 63-acre city park, the jewel of the Sunset District. In this visual history Lorri will show beautiful meadows and discuss the area’s colorful history, including the squatters who lived on the land, the shootout in the 1800s, the infamous Victorian Trocadero, and how the area avoided  being turned into a residential community. You’ll learn about the free concerts that have been held on Sundays every summer since 1938. (Lorri will bring information on the last three concerts for this summer.) And you’ll learn about a real treasure in San Francisco history: Rosalie Stern, who bought 12 acres and donated them to the City in honor of her husband.

Lorri Ungaretti is the author of five books on the Richmond and Sunset Districts. She is the former SFHA vice president and now works for the San Francisco Historical Society.

Doors open at 7 p.m. with refreshments and a historical book sale; presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. sharp. There is a $10 admission for nonmembers. Paid parking at CPMC on Webster, one block away, plus a limited amount of street parking. Muni: 1, 2, 3, 10, 22, 24.
