San Francisco Travel guide
San Francisco : Michelin's recommendations
Founded as Mission Dolores (by priests) and the Presidio (by soldiers) in 1776, San Francisco grew from the pueblo of Yerba Buena. In 1835, English sailor William Richardson, married to the daughter of the Presidio comandante, set up a tent where Grant Avenue now runs. Yerba Buena grew modestly on trade, changing its name to San Francisco after the US claimed California in 1846.
