Stories of the City Streets
Tuesday, June 11
Join us for an evening look at the fascinating, forgotten, and sometimes bizarre stories behind San Francisco street names.
From grifters to bold explorers, gold rush millionaires to ladies of ill-repute: the stories behind our city's street names are fantastically eclectic, to match our odd city's past. Join us as we dig into the true stories of how our city established its famously complicated grid, conquered the seven hills, and the tales of the cartographers, founding fathers, and movers and shakers who got their names on the map.
