Call it Clawson, Watts Tract, Dogtown - this historic West Oakland neighborhood has always had a pragmatic and shifting mix of homes and industry. Clawson grew up where roads, rail, and water meet, on the border of Emeryville whose iron works, stockyards, and racetrack once employed neighborhood residents of many ethnicities. Learn about the neighborhood's early civic institutions, businesses, and personalities, and see how it continues to evolve. A level walk with some site visits.

Leader: Betty Marvin, Ray Kidd, and West Oakland Neighbors
