Mission District Historical Walking Tour
with Elizabeth Creely

Friday, November 8, 2019 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

In partnership with Hinterland.

Elizabeth Creely, San Francisco resident and Irish-American historian, conducts a walking tour of the historic Mission District. While it is now primarily identified with the city's Hispanic community, in times past, it was home to thousands of 19th Century, 'two boat' Irish immigrants to the far West.

Meeting at 2901 Mission St. (25th St. and Mission St.).
