Landing Place of Captain J. B. Montgomery
California State Historic Landmark 81
On July 9, 1846, in the early morning, in "the days when the water came up to
Montgomery Street," Commander John B. Montgomery - for whom Montgomery Street was named - landed
near this spot from the U.S. sloop-of-war "Portsmouth," to raise the Stars and Stripes on the
plaza, now Portsmouth Square, one block to the west.
Nothing remains of this site.
552 Montgomery St, SE corner of Montgomery and Clay, San Francisco.
