February – March 2015
Join us for a study in contrasts between four different urban stairways in four different states of access. We’ll also explore where the F.M. “Borax” Smith estate was, see a house that was owned by Henry J. Kaiser, and more.
The walk starts at the bottom of the Cleveland Cascade on Lakeshore. You might find parking near the top of the steps and walk down to start.
- A moderate walk, some stairs and lots of history.
- Heavy rain cancels, light rain doesn’t.
- Dogs OK!
In addition to our normal monthly walk, OUP is co-sponsoring a Women’s History Tour for Women’s History Month. Annalee Allen of the Oakland Tours Program will be leading a two hour downtown walking tour focused on some famous local women, including Delilah Beasley, Ina Coolbrith, Gertrude Stein, Isadora Duncan, and Julia Morgan.
This will involve a bit less walking and a bit more history than our normal monthly walks.
The tour begins on the steps of Oakland City Hall in Frank Ogawa Plaza at 10 A.M. We’ll wind our way to Camron-Stanford House where participants can either go on a tour of the home or return to our starting point.
