Learn about the birthplaces of the Gold Rush and the village of Yerba Buena; the original shoreline; the Pony Express headquarters site; the grave of a Gold Rush–era ship; and the Jackson Square district, where Gold Rush and Barbary Coast–era buildings remain. Visit the notorious Barbary Coast, home to shanghaiers, vigilantes, and “Terrific” Street.
