The Presidio: San Francisco Started Here


Juana Briones talks about the history

In 1776, Juan Bautista de Anza led a diverse group of families to establish the Presidio, Spain's northernmost colony in Alta California.  Thus began San Francisco!  To hear more of the story, meet National Park Service volunteer Walter Coe at his drop-in interpretive session in the Presidio Visitor Center.  No reservations required.
