Presidio Officer's Club
"The Presidio is where San Francisco began. This inspiring setting at the mouth of an iconic bay was home to native peoples for more than a thousand years. Later it became a cultural crossroads for three nations laying claim to its strategic position.
In 1776, the Presidio was established as Spain’s northernmost outpost in the Americas. It then served as a Mexican fort from 1822 until 1846, when it became a premier U.S. Army post. Generations of soldiers passed through its gates, serving our nation around the world.
The Army departed in 1994, when the Presidio began the transformation to its next public purpose. Today, the Presidio is a new kind of national park offering authentic experiences of nature, history and community. It is yours to discover. "
