Most Neglected Plaque in S.F.?

Besides the graffiti and shadow of the shopfront gate, here’s what it says:

THE BIRTHPLACE OF A GREAT CITY

HERE, JUNE 25, 1835, WILLIAM A. RICHARDSON,

FOUNDER OF YERBA BUENA, (LATER SAN FRANCISCO,)

ERECTED ITS FIRST HABITATION, A TENT DWELLING,

REPLACING IT, IN OCTOBER, 1835, BY THE FIRST WOODEN HOUSE,

AND ON THIS GROUND, IN 1836, HE ERECTED THE

LARGE ADOBE BUILDING, KNOWN AS “CASA GRANDE”.

THIS TABLET WAS PLACED UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE

NORTHERN FEDERATION OF CIVIC ORGANIZATIONS

OF SAN FRANCISCO.

THIS SITE WAS CONFIRMED BY

THE CALIFORNIA HISTORICAL SOCIETY
