NCTPG tours the Tenderloin

After the NCTPG 2016 Annual Meeting, several attendees joined tours of neighborhood memory institutions. The Tenderloin Museum offers a walking tour Tuesday through Saturday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Bill Fricker, executive director, graciously arranged our tour with Pamela, local resident and expert in Tenderloin history. One attendee said, “The Tenderloin Museum and tour was extremely profound.” We highly recommend planning a visit!
