Civic Center
Bounded by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Golden Gate Avenue, 7th Street
Designated December 1994

San Francisco Civic Center was inspired by the City Beautiful movement which originated with the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893. The exposition's monumental, neoclassical White City was the antithesis of most American cities which had grown chaotically in the preceding era of rapid immigration and industrialization.

Adapted from San Francisco Planning Code: Article 10, Appendix J

Civic Center is also National Register Listing #78000757 and the War Memorial Complex is Califonia Historical Landmark 964.
