It is not generally known that a heroic maritime rescue occurred on the present day sites of the National Historical Park and Fisherman’s Wharf. On the second day following the great 1906 Earthquake, 30,000 frantic residents, forced to flee to the waterfront to escape fires raging throughout the city, were safely evacuated from the area by boat.


Families, general public. Free event.
