El Cerrito architecture talk March 2
St. John’s Senior Center and the El Cerrito Historical Society present:
El Cerrito’s Architectural Heritage
An illustrated talk by Dave Weinstein
This event is free to the public
Learn about El Cerrito’s rich architectural history – including buildings by such star Bay Area architects as John Hudson Thomas and Walter Ratcliff. One of the world’s leading modernists, Richard Neutra, designed two houses in El Cerrito, and the city’s hills are particularly rich in wonderful mid-century modern homes.
Visit intact neighborhoods from several different eras that give El Cerrito much of its charm and character.
Hear about the city’s most beautiful street, chock-a-block with picturesque Storybook homes! See the city’s cutest rustic cabin! Enjoy a church designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s son, and admire what could be the nicest mid-century modern school in the East Bay!
Dave, vice-president of the El Cerrito Historical Society, is the author of “Signature Architects of the San Francisco Bay Area.”
