San Francisco Landmark #96
Francis Scott Key Monument
Golden Gate Park
Built 1888

This monument, designed by William Wetmore Story and funded by James Lick, was the nation's first memorial to Francis Scott Key.

In 1888, when the monument was unveiled, The Star-Spangled Banner was not the national anthem of the United States. It did not achieve that distinction until 1931.
