After 10 years in the accounting field, Angela Romero lost her job during the economic crisis in 2009. To combat the stress of her situation and to get healthy, Angela devised a simple, yet ambitious personal challenge - to walk every single street in her hometown of San Pedro, CA. This life-changing pilgrimage around town soon became a thesis-like study of the community. She chronicled her travels on her blog, San Pedro: Block by Block. Soon San Pedrans near and far were following her trek and offering bits of information or sharing memories. When the project was completed, Angela decided to share all the history she had learned in the form of walking tours and found other outlets to continue the conversation, especially a monthly column in San Pedro Today Magazine. Angela’s love for sharing the town’s stories has earned her a reputation as a local historian and San Pedro expert.
In 2018, Angela founded the San Pedro Heritage Museum. Her chief initiatives for the museum include a local history curriculum for 3rd and 4th grades, historic preservation and the celebration of San Pedro’s contributions throughout history. Angela has an unwavering dedication to the community of San Pedro and will continue to use her knowledge to its benefit by partnering with local businesses and organizations to make the San Pedro Heritage Museum an invaluable asset to the community.
