During this easy two-hour walking tour of the eastern end of Golden Gate Park, guide Chris Pollock will explain the role that the park played in the aftermath of the 1906 Great Quake.
Hear about the refugees who, by the thousands, flocked to the park in search of a sanctuary, and how the military and city organized major camps there, including hospital facilities. Here accounts of compassionate acts as residents were forced to come together in the face of disaster. See what happened to some of the park's structures and why a few institutions ended up in the park later. Especially symbolic is the relocating of a Nob Hill mansion's entry portal, whose nostalgic reflection in Lloyd Lake still resonates with many people 100 years later.
