Please Join the San Francisco Historical Society for a Romp Into Gold Rush History

In this presentation, tour guide Thom Jackson will take us back in time to visit the “instant City” that sprung up on the shore of Yerba Buena Cove after the discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill. We’ll take a virtual stroll through the infamous Barbary Coast; visit the Long Wharf (which began at foot of Commercial Street); and find out where the ghostly remains of Gold Rush ships are buried beneath the modern Financial District.
