Murals And The Multi-Ethnic Mission

Neighborhood: Mission


See how the culture, lore, and history of this neighborhood have literally left their mark on its walls! We start with a four-story mural at the Women’s Building and view many others, including an eight-story example at Bethany Center. We’ll invoke ghosts from the past, including Catholic missionaries, orthodox Jews, German Lutherans, and Palestinian refugees. But we won’t wallow in the past. The neighborhood is now a hipster magnet, full of modern construction and re-purposed buildings on the Mission Street “Miracle Mile.” Specific destinations may vary in this dynamic district where change is the only constant!
