In 1868, the area now known as Lincoln Park, was reserved by the City of San Francisco for a city cemetery, also known as Potter’s Field or Golden Gate Cemetery. In 1901, the Board of Supervisors banned all burials in the City of San Francisco and by 1909, the city ordered Golden Gate Cemetery to move.
