Help Make Macdonald Avenue History Come To Life


Memories of Macdonald is an invitation to the people of Richmond to share their recollections and reflections of Macdonald Avenue, the citys main downtown thoroughfare. Memories of Macdonald will preserve first-hand accounts of the Avenues many evolutions, and will contribute to the development of a series of permanent, interpretive markers along Macdonald Avenue being commissioned by the Richmond Community Redevelopment Agency. As the heart of Richmonds downtown, Macdonald Avenue is one of the best places to create dialogue with Richmonds diverse residents, and we propose to do so in a number of ways.

Memories of Macdonald is a 6-month project that invites area residents to explore and share their memories, concerns and hopes for Macdonald Avenue. Memories of Macdonald is being developed by several community partners including the Community Redevelopment Agency, East Bay Center for the Performing Arts, Richmond Main Street Initiative, the Richmond Museum of History and Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park.

Please come to our first event at the Richmond Museum of History, Saturday August 5th 2-4:30 PM.

Bring your stories and stuff (photos, postcards, news-clippings, and and all memorabilia to:

Richmond Museum of History, 400 Nevin Avenue (at 4th Street)

Your memories will be preserved and recorded at the Richmond Museum and they may end up in a historic marker on Macdonald Avenue. Donations to the Museum will also be welcomed.

Light refreshments and Spanish translation will be available.
