Gold Coast Glimmers

Join historian Woody Minor on a tour showcasing the architecture of
Alameda’s premier historic neighborhood.

Meet at Franklin Park, Morton Street & San Antonio Avenue, Alameda, CA
Free for AAPS members; $5 for non-members 



A rich repository of houses dating back to the 1870s, the Gold Coast  is Alameda’s most impressive neighborhood—an architectural icon of the era of commuter trains and ferries. The oak groves along the southern shore became the setting for dozens, then hundreds, of fine homes and gardens arrayed along tree-lined streets. This year’s Woody Walk will take in a century’s worth of styles, from Italianate, Stick, and Queen Anne, through Colonial Revival and Craftsman, to Spanish, Ranch, and Modernism.
