Yoshiko Yamanouchi House Historic District Tour

BY INVITATION ONLY

May, 2024 

Presented by San Mateo Heritage Alliance

An exclusive tour of San Mateo's newest Historic District, placed on the National Register of Historic Places in December 2023. The Yoshiko Yamanouchi House is listed  at the local level of significance under Criteria A and B in the areas of Ethnic Heritage/Asian/Japanese and Social History/Women’s History for its association with a prominent member of the Issei (immigrant) generation in San Mateo’s Japanese American community. This new historic district highlights the influence of the Japanese American Community in San Mateo, from the early 20th century to today.

 

The Yoshiko Yamanouchi House is one of only three properties nationwide spotlighted in the recent National Register publication "Best Practices Review."  This is a tour you won't want to miss.  Space is limited.

Please see the article about the tour in the San Mateo Daily Journal.
