Russian Hill : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Can someone give me a fairly detailed version of how Russian Hill got it's name? And the history behind it?

Russian Hill got it's name because early settlers walked up the hill and found a cemetary with many tombs having russian writting on them. Thus, they called it Russian Hill.
