Name

The original name of the town was taken from the yerba buena (Micromeria douglasii) plant, native to the pueblo site. Franciscan missionary Pedro Font, accompanying the Juan Bautista de Anza expedition of 1775-76, applied the Spanish name to the common native herb he found abundant in the landscape. The plant's common name, yerba buena, the same in English and Spanish, is an alternate form of the Spanish hierba buena (meaning "good herb").

"San Francisco" is Spanish for "Saint Francis", which was named after Saint Francis of Assisi, after colonists from Spain established Presidio of San Francisco at the Golden Gate and Mission San Francisco de Asís a few miles away. Yerba Buena was renamed San Francisco on January 30, 1847.

Trivia

  • This city has almost the exact same "issues" that New York does, as both are constantly picked for RPs and major events and are constantly rebuilt without anyone saying they are.
  • The city is very known for the Golden Gate Bridge which is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the one-mile-wide (1.6 km) strait connecting San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Built in 1937, it has been destroyed countless times in each time San Francisco appears in RPs.
