Calvary Presbyterian Church
2501 Fillmore Street at Jackson Street
The original Calvary Presbyterian Church was built on Bush Street between Sansome and
Montgomery and dedicated on January 14, 1855. The congregation had fewer than one hundred
souls, but one of them was the mayor.
In 1869, a new church was built at Geary and Powell where the lobby of the St. Francis
Hotel stands today. This location served until 1900, when the church was demolished and
moved to its current location where it rode out the 1906 Earthquake with only minor damage.
