SF Map: L, 6

In the late 1800s Nob Hill was settled by four mining and railroad industrialists: Charles Crocker, Leland Stanford, Mark Hopkins and Collis P. Huntington. The palatial mansions of the "Big Four" have been replaced by some of the most elegant hotels in San Francisco-the Fairmont, Mark Hopkins, Stouffer Stanford Court and Huntington. The Ritz-Carlton opened in 1991.

The advent of the cable car in the 1870s led to the residential development of Nob Hill. It remains one of the City's most desired addresses.

The cable car lines meet at the top of California and Powell streets, creating
a unique San Francisco photo
vantage point.

Grace Episcopalian Cathedral, the largest Gothic structure in the West, was built in 1928 as a replica of Notre Dame in Paris.
