A series of historical factoids about San Francisco’s Castro district that will be etched in cement along Castro Street will have its official debut the weekend of this year’s annual Castro Street Fair.
Officially known as the Castro Street History Walk, the project will feature 20 facts about the neighborhood placed into the sidewalks on the 400 and 500 blocks of Castro Street. It is part of the sidewalk-widening project currently under way and is being funded by the Castro Upper Market Community Benefit District, at a cost of $10,000.
It is meant to cover the breadth of the neighborhood’s 230-year history, beginning with the Native Americans who called it home, then the various Europeans who moved into what became known as Eureka Valley, and later migrations of LGBT residents who referred to it as the Castro.
