Noe Valley: A Village Within the City

Neighborhood: Noe Valley


Noe Valley is a series of delightful surprises. Much of its story is tucked away within the confines of the neighborhood. Who was Noe? What is Horner’s Addition? Why do some people call it Stroller Valley? Who were the builders that created the charming homes that line the streets? Did Andrew Carnegie live here?

To find the answers, come join us on a fun walking adventure. We will dive into the history of this working-class-turned-upscale neighborhood as we roam the streets of Noe Valley, stopping to admire some of the architecture that escaped the 1906 Earthquake & Fire.

Sheltered from our famous San Francisco fogs by Twin Peaks, it has some of the best weather in The City. Learn how this area was transformed from a blue-collar stronghold into a delightful “Village within a City” — Noe Valley.
