vintageSFmap

In what has become one of the largest displays of San Francisco’s history, The City’s past will once again come to life at the annual San Francisco History Expo being held March 1 and 2 at The Old Mint at 5th and Mission Streets. Now in its fourth year, the 2014 Expo will feature displays by more than 50 San Francisco organizations. The “mini-museums” will fill the first floor of The Old Mint and showcase the diversity of San Francisco’s communities and historical events.

Downstairs on the vault level, presentations will include discussions on Angel Island immigration, the 1906 earthquake and fire, the ill-fated Ocean Shore Railroad and Coit Tower muralist Victor Arnautoff. The Expo will also feature films, special programs, walking tours, an art exhibition and more.

The event will be held Saturday March 1 from 11:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday March 2 from 11:00am to 4:00pm. The entrance fee is $5 and children under 12 are free. For more information, please visit www.sfhistoryexpo.org.

The Expo is a great way for residents and visitors to learn more about our wonderful city. I encourage you to check it out and if you do, I’d love to know what you think!
