Having celebrated our centennial in 2012, St. Francis Wood looks forward to the next century. We are located in the center of San Francisco on the western face of the city’s highest peak, Mount Davidson. It was heavily-forested land remote from downtown San Francisco, when the Mason-McDuffie Company sought in 1912 to create a residence park that embodied the highest ideals of early twentieth century landscaping and architecture. Laid out by the Olmsted Brothers, St. Francis Wood attracted some of the Bay Area’s most accomplished architects including John Galen Howard, Louis Christian Mullgardt, Henry Gutterson, Gertrude Comfort, Masten and Hurd, and Julia Morgan. St Francis Wood is one of the country’s most successful examples of a City Beautiful “garden suburb.” Yes, we have occsional fog, but we also have sunshine, views of the Pacific ocean, and all that San Francisco can offer. Truely, a place to leave one's heart!
