Sixty Plus - San Francisco’s Mission District

Monday, July 10, 2017 - 13:00

San Francisco’s Mission District

Bernadette C. Hooper, Author and Historian

Bernadette's discussion of San Francisco’s Mission District follows the development of this diverse neighborhood from the founding of Mission Dolores in 1776 to recent days. Bernadette has done extensive research into the history, people and institutions of the neighborhood relying on old and new friends, the Public Library, Mechanic’s Institute Library and the California Historical Society.  Her work focuses on the “Inner Mission” – the area is fortunate to have maintained much of its pre-1900 Victorian structure.

Bernadette is the author of “San Francisco’s Mission District” and co-author of “Catholics in San Francisco".  She is a third generation San Franciscan and grew up in the Mission District home her great grandparents built in the 1890’s.
