1906 Earthquake and Fire: Chinatown’s Devastation and Renewal – Walking Tour
Saturday, September 2 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
At dawn on April 18, 1906, the San Andreas fault ruptured, sending shockwaves racing across San Francisco. The City is abruptly awakened only to witness a firestorm destroying everything in sight over the next three days. Vibrant and densely populated Chinatown is swiftly engulfed by a raging fire on Day One and its inhabitants are dispersed like embers in the wind. With Chinatown destroyed, City politicians and power brokers decide this is an opportune time to relocate the community. Powered by an irrepressible resiliency the Chinese community reimagines Chinatown and builds back better.
