Jackson Square Historic District

San Francisco's earliest commercial buildings are represented by the Jackson Square Historic District. During the 1850s, this waterfront area was constructed on fill, part of which consists of abandoned ships that still lie below the ground. Among the ornate Italianate cast iron facades are many buildings that survived the great fire following the earthquake of 1906.

The Jackson Square Historic District is roughly bounded by Broadway, Sansome St., Washington St. and Columbus Ave. in San Francisco.
