Three Historic San Francisco Neighborhoods and the History that Defines Them

Travel
By Phineas Upham San Francisco is one of the most rapidly evolving places in California. Shaped over time by gold rushes, missionaries and technology, San Francisco’s history often gets lost, or sometimes built over during these transitions. Creativity and commerce flow from this place, but much of it would not be possible without reflecting upon what makes the area great. More than the financial district, or the chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf, here are three historic neighborhoods that encompass San Francisco. The Dog Patch The Dogpatch area was traditionally industrial with a light touch of residential. Until the 90s, that largely held true. Previously known as “Butchertown”, the name seems to stem from a colloquialism suggesting dogs were waiting around for scraps of meat. Today, it’s become an upper-middle class neighborhood…

How the Sons of Liberty Began

History
By Samuel Phineas Upham The Sons of Liberty was a group of American colonists who acted in secret to try and protect the rights of those living on American soil. Their best-known fight was to pick up the torch against taxation by the British, with many contemporary grade school students (and hopefully most adults) quite familiar with the line “no taxation without representation.” The origins of this secret society can be traced back to the French and Indian War, which was the North American front in the Seven Years War.

Fighting was bloody, and costly, but the Brits had secured New York and had a solid…
