Gallery 1 - Presidio Milestones
The Presidio has been transformed by the Presidio Trust and the National Park Service - with support from the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and many partners - from a military post to a new kind of national park. Today, this American landmark welcomes visitors, is home to a vibrant community, and inspires greater good through programs that draw on its history and natural resources. Trace the recent revitalization of this treasured place, and learn how the community has come together to save the Presidio.
Gallery 2 - The Next Chapter: Creating a Future from Our Past
A Heritage Program is being launched at the Presidio—a multifaceted effort that encourages visitors to connect more deeply with our heritage. In 2014, the revitalized Officers’ Club will be a focal point for this new effort. Through this interactive exhibit, learn about the ongoing design, historic research, and program development for the Officers’ Club. View sketches of the exhibits being planned, learn about proposed educational offerings, and become a partner in developing a calendar of public events. Come share your ideas!
