Mayor’s Office Reverses Decision - Fifth Annual History Expo Allowed to Take Place at the Old Mint
The San Francisco Museum and Historical Society (SFMHS) has been informed by the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development that it has reversed its decision and the 5th Annual San Francisco History Expo may take place at the Old Mint on February 28 — March 1, 2015.
SFMHS expresses its sincere appreciation to the dozens of local and neighborhood Expo exhibitors and the hundreds of lovers of San Francisco history who raised their voices to inform the Mayor that they objected to the decision of his staff to prohibit the Expo at the Old Mint.
We can now once again look forward to the Old Mint alive with the wonderful exhibits presented by more than 55 local and neighborhood history organizations – all appreciated by the more than 3,500 history enthusiasts of all ages who come to enjoy the exhibits and their time in the “Granite Lady.” We look forward to seeing you on February 28 — March 1 at the Old Mint.
