Nob Hill at a Glance

The neighborhood was once referred to as California Hill in the early 19th century, named after California Street. Following its label of California Hill, it was legally changed by the Central Pacific Railroad’s Big Four, coincidentally also called the Nobs. Nob is derived from British terminology where the word was used to define the newly rich; a perfect fit considering the enjoyed wealthy success of the Big Four.

Nob Hill saw a large influx of upper class tenants following the rapid urbanization that occurred in the late 19th century. It essentially became a favorite stomping ground of the wealthy because of its views and centralized location. This favoritism led to ample amounts of real estate innovation and mansion development until a troubling earthquake and fire destroyed the neighborhood in 1906, only leaving behind exceptional granite walls. These walls preserved the Stanford, Huntington, Crocker and Hopkins mansions but the devastation gave immediate pause to other moguls looking to move into Nob Hill.

Memories of the significance of the Big Four are upheld by immaculate hotels noted for their great expenses which include: the Fairmont Hotel, Mark Hopkins Hotel, the Stanford Court and the Huntington Hotel. Very close by to the internationally renowned hotels is one of the world’s largest houses of worship, Grace Cathedral, with the state’s Masonic Temple located around the corner.

Residents and locals escape the at-times overwhelming high density nature of the neighborhood by exploring its parks and dining out. Popular parks are Huntington Park and Washington and Hyde Mini Park. Frequented restaurants for their various delicious cuisines include Venticello Ristorante, the Big 4 Restaurant and Seven Hills.

Most travel locally by using the BART, the city’s public transit service.
