Dunes, Trains, and Beer: The Buried History of SOMA

Saturday, March 18, 12-2:30 pm

Meet in front of SOMARTS, 934 Brannan

Join us for a walking tour where you’ll discover lost layers of history, from flattened sand dunes, buried wetlands, and a navigable river, to the many uses of SOMA including slaughterhouses, steel mills, and breweries. Learn about what was present in times past and how the physical city came to look the way it does now by way of industrial and neighborhood successions. The spots we’ll visit are documented with historic photos. We will end at the Mission Creek channel.  $10-20 sliding scale donation requested to benefit Shaping San Francisco.
