: Does anyone know if some kind of "event" happened in this immediate area either prior to development by SF or after that? I am attempting to research a story told to me by an elderly friend and SF (pre 06 quake) native, now passed, who claimed a significant event involving loss of life occured at that location but she could not remember, even approximately, when, as her memory for details was fading. It would have certainly been prior to 1970 and could have been as far back as the times the Spanish were here. Any help would be greatly appreciated even though this is a peculiar question. Thanks.
Hi,
Go to the Western Neighborhoods Project website. www.outsidelands.org/
Click on the "People" heading. Go to the story on Fred Van Dyke by Lorri Ungaretti and you can read about the "Storm of 1936".
