California State Historic Landmark 84
#084 Rincon Hill
A fashionable neighborhood in the 1860's, Rincon Hill was the home of William
Tecumseh Sherman, William C. Ralston, William Gwin, H.H. Bancroft, and others. By the 1880's
the hill, already partially leveled, became a working class district. Today it is nearly invisible
beneath the Bay Bridge. This plaque is mounted on the retaining wall of St. Mary's Hospital,
built 1861 but destroyed in the fire of 1906.
NE corner of Rincon and Bryant Sts, San Francisco.
