Along Lake Merritt’s Western Shore
In the second program of our Fall History Series discover the history of two interesting Oakland neighborhoods, Lakeside and Madison Square. Oakland History Room librarian Dorothy Lazard will take you on a virtual tour of both districts, highlighting some of the characters, institutions, buildings, and events that have marked the area west of Lake Merritt.
This event is free and open to the public.
