32-42 Hotaling Place
This photograph of Hotaling Place was taken from the intersection of Jackson Street and Hotaling Place.
The Hotaling Stables were located in this alley, but the exact location is not obvious.
In 1846, San Francisco was a tiny Mexican pueblo named Yerba Buena, and the shoreline of San Francisco Bay was located where
Hotaling Place is today. On July 9, Captain John B. Montgomery landed a few hundred feet from here near the site
of the Transamerica Building and raised the American flag in Portsmouth Plaza to claim the territory for the United States.
Two of the loveliest buildings in San Francisco flank the entrance to Hotaling Place, the Hotaling Building
and the Hotaling Annex West.
Hotaling Place is in the Jackson Square Historic District.
