Grace Cathedral, San Francisco: 22 reviews and 65 photos
The Episcopal church has roots in San Francisco dating back to 1849, and the Grace Church itself is nearly that old. The current church was built after the 2nd church building was destroyed by the 1906 Earthquake and Fire. The land on Nob Hill was donated by the railroad baron/banker Crocker Family that was a prominent influence in the life of San Francisco. The construction of the current cathedral began in 1928 and was completed in 1964. The French Gothic style concrete and steel structure is designed to withstand seismic forces and is the third largest Episcopal church in the USA.
Address: 1100 California Street
Directions: Top of Nob Hill. Can't miss it, but parking is very expensive up there, so take the California Street Cable car or walk.
