Guide: Rob Spoor

Before the Gold Rush, Mission Bay was a simple, shallow inlet whose main residents were ducks. Early filling of the bay enabled the development of San Francisco’s largest railroad yard surrounded by a bustling industrial district. With the decline of rail traffic, this large valuable section of land became one of the city’s largest construction projects. The “bay” has mostly disappeared, but the future of Mission Bay looks bright and beautiful.
