The Mission District
The Mission District is the region surrounding the oldest building in San Francisco, the Mission Dolores. It was completed in 1791 and has survived 4 major earthquakes including the 1906 earthquake that flattened most of San Francisco. Ironically, it was almost destroyed by lowly wood-eating beetles in the 1990s. Strange but true.
