The Skinker-DeBaliviere Neighborhood is well over 100 years old. Come learn about its early years and how it overcame mid-century stresses to become the vibrant and diverse community it is now.
Jo Ann Vatcha and Marjorie Weir, authors of the book, Celebrating SD, Its History and Comeback, and Cal Stuart, former executive director of SDCC, will present historical highlights. Then, Dennis Northcott, Associate Archivist, will show examples of the wealth of resources at the MOHIS library and research center and show you how to get started researching the history of your own home and its former inhabitants. These resources include city directories, census records, neighborhood histories, photographs, maps, and much more.
