The History of the Telegraph Hill Dwellers


Founded in 1954, the Telegraph Hill Dwellers (THD) is one of the oldest, largest, and most widely respected neighborhood organizations in the nation. During its nearly six decades of existence, THD has led the way to celebrate, beautify, and protect San Francisco’s most unique and historic neighborhood. Without the hard work and support of the volunteers and members of THD, Telegraph Hill and North Beach would be vastly different from the beloved and special places they are today.
