The Presidio of San Francisco is a distinctive national park that was once a military base under three flags: Spanish, Mexican and United States. The 1,500-acre Presidio is a National Historic Landmark District comprised of nearly 800 contributing or eligible historic buildings that span a range of periods and styles, landscapes and objects. The Presidio is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is jointly managed by the Presidio Trust and the National Park Service. The Presidio Trust is an innovative federal agency created to save this former military post and transform it for a new national purpose.
