Document Description
The San Francisco Mint was a branch of the United States Mint that was opened in 1854 to serve the gold mines of the California Gold Rush, turning gold bullion into coins. In 1874, Mint operations moved into a new, larger building made of granite, sandstone, and concrete. This new structure was the sole physical structure that survived the 1906 earthquake in the Yerba Buena district and has been a National Historic Landmark since 1961. The San Francisco Museum and Historical Society is adapting the building to create a visitor center and museum. CCHE funds will be used for the completion of design development documents for sustainable interventions.
