Fort Mason Tour Guided By Historian John Martini
Friday, September 22, 4-6 PM
Join the Presidio Historical Association for an immersive tour guided by San Francisco Historian John Martini. Immerse yourself in the historic legacy of Fort Mason, from its construction during the Gold Rush era and the national landmark’s vital role in the abolitionist movement, home to Anti-Slavery “Free Soilers” before becoming a military headquarters for the Union Army during the Civil War. The Fort’s evolution into the epicenter of relief efforts during the 1906 earthquake, and logistical support command for the Pacific theater during WWII will also be explored, and much, much more.
The Tour will begin at the flagpole across from the Fort Mason chapel (Map) at 4 PM and end at the Fort Mason Center’s Off The Grid dining experience at 6 PM.
