Baker Beach : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I am interested in knowing if there is any history on Baker Beach, or the Golden Gate Ranch. Thank you .

Baker Beach is located within the Presidio of San Francisco, and most of its history and use has been related to military occupation. The major exception would be the early construction and operation of a pumping station at the mouth of Lobos Creek by the civilian-owned Spring Valley Water Company.

I recommend that you check out the posts 'official' titled "Defender of the Gate: The Presidio of San Francisco / A History from 1846 to 1995." This two-volume history is available at the Park Service's new Archive & Records Center at the Presidio.

Sorry I can't help with the Golden Gate Ranch.
