oakland, THE story of a city

Available through our OHA store , this book is a lively, widely recognized source for Oakland history.

2020 Spring Lecture Series

Each month Oakland Heritage Alliance hosts an informative and entertaining presentation on a different topic.


In the interest of the health of our members and friends, Oakland Heritage Alliance must regretfully cancel the Thursday, April 16 Hays Canyon  lecture. The cancellation is in response to public health concerns caused by the coronavirus pandemic and guidance from public health officials.

Individuals who have purchased advance tickets through Eventbrite will receive a full refund. If you have questions about your refund, please contact info@oaklandheritage.org

OHA hopes to reschedule our canceled programs in the fall. We are, however, in a fluid public health crises that makes it impossible to predict what the coming weeks will bring. Please bear with us.

We will continue to stay in touch as plans evolve. We are so grateful to have our community to help us get through this public health crisis. Please feel free to reach out by email and by phone with any questions or if you need any support--even if it's unrelated to historic preservation. We are happy to do what we can to connect you to city resources, talk you through a confusing online tool, or share book recommendations.
