The Historic Monument Trail honors the people who have made significant contributions to the Bay Area. The six inductees are Blanche Armwood, Herman Glogowski, Bena Wolf Maas, Gavino Gutierrez, Hugh Campbell Macfarlane and Moses White.

"Not only are we proud, but I think it shows the diversity of our community, and that diversity has been celebrated for generations, not just now, I mean what you see up there are African-Americans, Hispanics, Whites, you see men and women, you see Jews and Christians," Buckhorn said.

"Those were people who cared about their community that worked together, that got along, and as a result, we have this amazing city."

These 6 inductees join 12 other influential figures including Henry B. Plant and Vicente Martinez along the 2.5 mile trail at the Riverwalk.
