Stay informed on history, the latest updates, news, and local San Francisco culture from the Inn at the Presidio.
“Built in 1903, the elegant Georgian Revival-style building was once home to unmarried officers (their married counterparts lived nearby in the Victorian cottages along Officers’ Row, the oldest intact streetscape in San Francisco).
It was named for General John J. “Black Jack” Pershing who served at the Presidio of San Francisco and who became commander of the American Expeditionary Force in France during World War I. The building later was a Visiting Officers’ Quarters until the Army’s departure in 1994. Pershing Hall is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.”
