Welcome to the historic McGee-Spaulding-Hardy District of Berkeley, California!

   Thanksgiving in the early 1900's: a family gathering outside 2333 McGee Street. Read more.

 We are a group of Berkeley residents who decided, in 2000, that the     architectural, social, and demographic history of our District was in danger of being overlooked or lost. 

This website summarizes the research and related activities we have undertaken since then, as well as our goals for the future. We hope in this way to encourage interest not only in our part of Berkeley but in the care and preservation of historic districts everywhere. (See About MSHHIG.)
