Summary of The Day: For more than a century San Francisco's Nob Hill has been associated with the upper crust, the beau monde, la dolce vita. San Francisco's nobs, after which the district is named, made their fortunes in the mid-1800s in gold, silver and the Central Pacific Railroad. After the devastation of the 1906 earthquake, the hill rose from the ashes and is now home to some of the most exclusive hotels in the city.
Our tour begins in front of the Cable Car Museum at 1201 Mason. This is the perfect place to depart on our tour; without the invention of the cable car, Nob Hill would have never become the pinnacle of status and prestige.
Below are some of the sites and buildings we'll see and discuss along the way:
• Grace Cathedral, former sight of the Crocker mansion and the infamous Spite Fence
• Huntington Park, former site of the Huntington Mansion
• Mark Hopkins Hotel, home of the legendary Top of the Mark
• Stanford Court Hotel, former site of the mansion of Leland Stanford
• Fairmont Hotel, where you'll find the Tonga Room, The Venetian Room, and The Laurel Court Restaurant
• Huntington Hotel, home of the Big Four Restaurant and the Nob Hill Spa
• Brocklebank Apartments
• Pacific Union Club, once the home of Silver barron James Clair Flood
