Ruthenberg House

The Ruthenberg House at 121 Haight Street served as "the Workers Cultural Center" of San Francisco in the 1930s. It housed the Workers' Library and Bookstore, the Workers' School, the Workers' Theater, and the Strike Kitchen where food was served to strikers during the 1934 General Strike. Vigilantes attacked the Ruthenberg House in July 1934 as the General Strike was breaking out, shattering windows, and destroying the stage of the theater.
