History of the Embarcadero
Originally known as the Barbary Coast, the Downtown Waterfront District has a rich history that dates from the Gold Rush, a rough-and-tumble era that ignited when gold was discovered in California during the 1840's. From April to December 1849, more than 700 vessels steamed through the Golden Gate filled with fortune seekers hoping to strike it rich. Many of these ships were beached in their berths and converted to warehouses, offices and saloons, the first commercial enterprises near where Embarcadero Center now stands..
