Old U.S. Mint Among America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places

Jun24th


On June 24, 2015, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named San Francisco’s Old U.S. Mint to its 2015 list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places, making it one of very few buildings in the nation to be featured on the list twice.

San Francisco Heritage, working alongside the National Trust, is advocating for the City to remedy this longstanding “civic black eye” once and for all. Heritage’s nomination was prompted by the Old Mint’s deteriorating physical condition, its soon-to-be-vacant status, and the opportunity to create a financing mechanism in conjunction with major upzoning planned for the Central SoMa neighborhood.
