California Historical Landmark #83

A couple of times a month, I spend the day in the bay area for meetings. One of those regular monthly meetings is held in the San Francisco business district. Two blocks from the site and right on my inbound drive is the following historical marker. It is almost half a mile up Market from the Ferry Building and the bay!

This landmark is a plaque in sidewalk at the northeast corner of Bush and Market Streets in San Francisco, California. There are 48 other California State Historical Landmarks in San Francisco County.

This tablet marks the shore line of the San Francisco Bay at the time of the discovery of gold in California, January 24, 1848, map reproduced above delineates the old shore line.
