SF Fire Department Fire Museum
655 Presidio Avenue (btwn. Bush and Pine)
Please join Heritage Young Preservationists for a fun and fascinating tour of the SF Fire Department’s Fire Museum! The museum is tucked next door to Fire Station No. 10 on Presidio Avenue and is full of interesting artifacts and information pertaining to the history of firefighting in San Francisco. We’ll be given a docent-lead tour of the collection and have an architectural historian on hand to give a brief talk about fire station architecture around the city. Afterwards, we’ll pop over to Swank – a small cocktail lounge inside the Laurel Inn (488 Presidio Ave) – for drinks and socializing.
The Fire Museum is easy to reach by bus from Downtown via the 1/California and 38/Geary. Both have express lines (look for the 1BX or 38BX) that run during evening commute hours, if you time it right.
Get fired up! We look forward to seeing you!

Tribune Tavern, bar area
401 13th Street, Oakland
(12th Street BART adjacent)
Join HeritageYP across the Bay at Tribune Tavern. It’s a new bar and restaurant in a great old building – the Oakland Tribune Tower!
A century ago, the ground floor of the Tribune Tower was used as its “local room,” where reporters from different departments of the newspaper worked side by side and shared tips on the news of the day. It was a gathering spot for the great minds of Oakland, and a place where headlines were made.
On Wednesday, August 7 at 6:30 p.m., HeritageYP will host a summer happy hour that will feature a history talk by the Oakland Heritage Alliance (OHA). All are invited to attend an evening of history, conversation, and the Tribune Tavern’s specialty: local beers and wines.
We hope to see you there!
(Please note that the Tribune Tavern is located one block from the 12th Street BART station – very easy to get to!)
