Presidio Historical Association
The Presidio Historical Association is an organization first formed in the 1960’s to save Fort Point. It subsequently created the Presidio History Museum in the old hospital, a facility which was closed down by the Park Service when the Presidio was made a park. When Fort Point was taken over by the Park Service, we changed our focus to historic preservation in the Presidio, advocating for the interpretation of history, and other issues surrounding the transformation of the Presidio into a park. In addition to advocacy, we sponsor lectures, events and even fun evenings designed to celebrate and illuminate the history of the Presidio.
Our mission is to promote understanding and preservation of the history of the Presidio of San Francisco as reflected in its stories, structures, sites and people.
