SFMHS and the Old San Francisco Mint
The City and County of San Francisco has terminated the development agreement with the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society, ending its plans for a museum at San Francisco’s landmark Old Mint. SFMHS is no longer involved with the building, and we have no information about its use after July 31, 2015. Questions should be directed to the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
Our friend Ron Henggeler has assembled a beautiful photo essay, including many images taken on our final day at the Old Mint. Look for it at ronhenggeler.com.
