Sold Out – “Cowbells in the Spring”: Histories of Fairmount Heights Walk on May 18, 2024


We will have a special walking tour of the little-known neighborhood of Fairmount Heights between Noe Valley and Glen Park on Saturday morning, May 18, 2024, 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The “Cowbells in the Spring” tour is led by neighborhood historian Evelyn Rose, founder of the Glen Park Neighborhoods History Project (, with 100% of the reservation fees going to SF Heritage.

Retrace the forgotten rural homesteads, rediscover the origins of both the names and routes of Chenery, Arlington, and other streets in the district, ponder whether the mother of California civil rights, Mary Ellen Pleasant, ever resided on Laidley Street, cogitate over how the district has a link to an iconic 1960s television show, and imagine the days when Southern Pacific trains made their way along the edge of the neighborhood.

Get some exercise and fresh air, learn some history, and support one of your favorite nonprofits.

Distance: 2.0 miles. Level: Moderately strenuous, primarily downhill. Rain postpones the event. Fee: $20 – all proceeds benefit SF Heritage.

Starting point for the tour will be shared in your reservation receipt email.
