Personal memories of places and events often provide the strongest connections between people and those places and events, and memories also offer differing perspectives on the past. The telling these stories is an excellent way for park rangers to connect visitors to the history of this special place.
You are invited to share your memories of the Presidio with the park service, and other users of this web site, who may have their own memories. Below are only a few of the many types of memories we would like you to share.
