In 1906 San Francisco experienced an earthquake like nothing in living memory. Four days of fires left much of the city in ruins, but thanks to Lt. Frederick Freeman the waterfront was saved.
Explore the Ferry Building and hear the stories of San Francisco's history and this unsung hero in this tour by William Perez and Rachel Erickson. It is part of the Bethlehem Ship Yard's San Francisco Earthquake memorial celebrations.
Thanks to Gladys and Richard Hansen from the Museum of the City of San Francisco and to the Port of San Francisco for their help with this tour.
