Presidio Building Reopens After Renovations

SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco’s oldest building, the Presidio Officers’ Club, reopened to the public on October 4. A ceremony on September 23 celebrated the end of the three-year intensive rehabilitation of the original adobe structure, which dates back to the early Spanish colonial settlement of the area.

“I invite all San Franciscans to visit the Officers’ Club,” said Craig Middleton, executive director of the Presidio Trust. “Stunning exhibits about the Presidio’s history, a new restaurant with Chef Traci Des Jardins, free public programming every week, event and education space, allow us to welcome the public like never before.”

The Presidio of San Francisco is a park and former military base that makes up part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. At the reopening ceremony of the park’s Officers’ Club building, federal and local officials attended a military tribute and other performances.

The building offers exhibits and programs that share the role the Presidio played in shaping California and the nation. Visitors can take advantage of one of the many programs offered at the Officers’ Club, such as live music, dance, dialogues with authors, films and other family programs.

The Presidio Trust plans on tackling other new initiatives for the park, including new restaurants, a third inn and additional free programming. In May 2014, the Presidio Trust opened its first full service restaurant, the Commissary, with Chef Des Jardins.
