Researching the History of Your Home

Curious who may have built your home? Who else may have lived there before you? What may have been on you lot before the current residence was built? We have links to local resources that will help get your research started! Learn more!

Early History

Immediately south of Twin Peaks and east of Mt. Davidson in San Francisco you'll find four additional peaks of the San Miguel Range: Red Rock Hill, Gold Mine Hill, Fairmount Hill (the latter also includes Billy Goat Hill), and Martha Hill. On each is situated several neighborhoods, each with its own rich history and unique legacy.

Documenting Oral Histories

Oral histories are an important tool for documenting our neighborhoods' legacies. The Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project, using tools and tips offered by the California Conference of Historical Societies, has developed a roadmap for performing this essential type of historic research.

America's First Suffrage March & the San Francisco Women Who Led It! 

Virtually presented at the San Francisco Public Library,

August 27, 2020, the 112th anniversary of the march. 

The presentation focuses on San Francisco's local suffrage activities, the activities of the California Equal Suffrage Association leading up to the march, and the women's leadership during a public health crisis.

Emboldened Women: The Suffragists of San Francisco's Glen Park and Their Role in America's First Suffrage March

Virtually presented at the California Historical Society on May 11, 2020, their very first digital public program!

This presentation takes a broader look at the history of women's suffrage in the United States and California and provides reasons why we believe this event does represent America's first march for suffrage!

San Francisco Board of Supervisors Approves Resolution Recognizing America's First Suffrage March, Co-Led by Glen Park Women!

In partnership with the Office of San Francisco Assessor-Recorder Carmen Chu and her staff, the GPNHP is proud to announce that what we believe is America's first suffrage march was approved by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors on August 25, 2020! Read the approved resolution!

Glen Park resident Johanna Pinther played a major role in what we believe is the first march for women's suffrage in the United States in 1908. The Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project is the first to identify Johanna as a Glen Park resident, and apparently the first to describe this historic event in detail.
