Finding a Sense of Place in San Francisco

Saturday, October 22, 2022

The San Francisco Main Public Library

Latino/Hispanic Meeting Room, lower level

Program begins at 10:00 am, ending at 11:30 am.

Please RSVP to attend this free event:

See Victorian Alliance originally-produced videos of history in our City and watch the exciting move of the Victorian Englander House in the streets of San Francisco that inspired a community. 


Read about the panelists: a historic home owner, a professional historic interior restorer, a real estate developer and architect who organized the move of the Englander House in 2021,  a former commissioner of the San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission and a commissioner of the San Francisco Film Commission. There will be opportunities to meet and talk with the panelists


Explore with our panelists how seeing history contributes to “place making” in our neighborhoods.

  • How does a community define its physical place and therefore a feeling of belonging in a neighborhood?

  • Why do historic houses still feel relevant to us in San Francisco?

  • How does this “sense of place” in our lives contribute to meaningful work and job creation?
