List of San Francisco Designated Landmarks

In 1967, the City of San Francisco, California adopted Article 10 of the Planning Code, providing the city with the authority to designate and protect landmarks from inappropriate alterations. As of January 2014, the city has designated 265 structures or other properties as San Francisco Designated Landmarks. Many of the properties have also received recognition at the federal level by inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places or by designation as National Historic Landmarks.

This is Park Emergency Hospital, a designated San Francisco landmark with a really interesting history. It was the first emergency hospital in the city, opening right before the big 1906 earthquake and of course it had to be reconstructed after that tragic event.
