A History the North Beach Neighborhood
Tuesday, 6/20/2023
6:30 - 7:30

Take a journey through time and learn about the history of North Beach neighborhood. San Francisco has over 400 designated landmarks. The North Beach district alone is home to 33 of them. Each building, each park and each monument has a story of its own and quite often a fascinating bit of history behind it. Join us and go back in time to see what makes this community so unique and vibrant.

Presenter: Catherine Accardi is a native San Franciscan, born on Telegraph Hill. She is a historian and author of three San Francisco books; North Beach & Telegraph Hill, San Francisco Landmarks, and San Francisco Through Time. With an A.A. in Photography, Urban Studies/Historic Preservation, Catherine has made over 40 presentations and has been a journalist with more than 150 published articles. The streets, byways and alleys of the City’s North Beach are her favorite haunt, every landmark documented and every experience remembered.
