Inner Richmond: Part I

Neighborhood: Richmond


The Richmond District is one of San Francisco’s largest neighborhoods, and one with a vibrant history. Once dismissively dubbed the “Outside Lands” due to its distance from the city center and vast sand dunes, the Richmond played a vital role in the development of San Francisco as a little village.  It gave way to rows of pretty 1890s Victorians buttressed by the open parkland of Golden Gate Park and the Presidio. Where cars rush by on Park Presidio Boulevard, the district once welcomed 1906 Earthquake refugees and there was a small triangular block of old cable cars remodeled into studio homes.
