Founded in 1954 and one of the oldest community organizations in San Francisco, Telegraph Hill Dwellers (THD) has worked hard for more than sixty years to make Telegraph Hill, North Beach and the Northeast Waterfront a better place to live for everyone, everywhere – not just those of us lucky enough to live here, but as Stewards of the Hill, for people who come from all over the world to see and experience this special place.
Celebrate History & Traditions
Founded in 1954, Telegraph Hill Dwellers is one of the oldest and widely respected neighborhood organization in the country. Originally formed by a group of concerned residents to protect the land where they lived.
Beautify & Improve
Telegraph Hill is a beautiful oasis in the heart of San Francisco. One of the core missions of THD is to maintain and improve the beauty of our surroundings.
For many of the residents of North Beach and Telegraph Hill, our community feels like a small town in the midst of a big city. THD is a place to meet your fellow neighbors and get involved.
Preserve & Protect
Since 1954, THD has worked to preserve and protect the unique character and special historic part of San Francisco for all that live here and travel from around the world to see our neighborhood.
Engage in City Affairs
Over the past six decades, THD has been instrumental in promoting the 40 foot height limit ordinance, residential parking sticker program, and designating Telegraph Hill and North Beach as Historic Districts, to name a few efforts.
