Welcome to Found San Francisco:
Your Place to discover and shape San Francisco's history...
A collaboration of Shaping San Francisco, the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society*, and YOU!
Over the past 15 years, Shaping San Francisco has been an ongoing multimedia project in bottom-up, participatory history... Now we want to offer it to you for exploration and discovery, and we invite you to add to it!
You can explore the stories of the City by the Bay by categories, or use the search bar on the right to hunt for an article of interest. Or, if you are in the mood for a surprise, check out a random page!
