HISTORY + LONG-TERM PLANS FOR THE SF MINT
The San Francisco Mint, also known affectionately as The Granite Lady, was said to have held nearly 1/3 of the nation’s wealth in its heyday. Opening in 1874, it miraculously withstood the devastating effects of the 1906 earthquake/fire and continued in operation until 1937. The Old Mint was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1961.
San Francisco’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) is leading the San Francisco Mint Restoration Project, the City’s effort to fully renovate The SF Mint and establish it as a destination cultural venue. OEWD has identified the California Historical Society (CHS) as its community partner for this important project. The City selected CHS after a publicly announced Request for Proposals process. CHS and the City are currently working together on the project’s due diligence phase during which time all aspects of the renovation scheme will be assessed and a full reuse proposal developed. More info can be found at oewd.org/oldmint.
It is the City’s intention that The SF Mint continue to serve as a community gathering space and event venue until such time as work can begin on the long-term restoration project.
