Potrero Hill Archives Project


The Potrero Hill Archives Project began in 1986 collecting oral histories of long-time residents, historic photos and really anything connected to Potrero Hill history. They hold a History Night each fall, lead walking tours, and have written two Arcadia books on Hill history. Most recently, they published an Arcadia book on the Dogpatch.
