National Park Service Ranger James Osborne

Two of the last 10′ by 14′ Earthquake Cottages built after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake now sit in the U.S. National Park Service’s Presidio in San Francisco, California, Tuesday, January 31, 2012. After the 1906 earthquake refugees were housed in tents, but as winter rains approached more than five thousand cottages were built by union carpenters to house fifteen thousand of the quarter million people left homeless. These two cottages where originally from Camp Richmond and later moved to 34th Avenue and Geary Boulevard and converted into single private home. In 1985, they were separated and brought to the Presidio for preservation.
