In the heart of San Francisco's Marina District lies a Beaux-Arts architectural treasure: the Palace of Fine Arts. California architect Bernard Maybeck originally developed the Palace as a temporary structure for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition, and even intended for the monument to decay into a romantic ruin. Instead, the citizens of San Francisco banded together to preserve the building, and the Palace remains as one of San Francisco's enduring icons to this day.
Join designer Suzanne Tucker on a tour of the Palace and its reflecting pool, and discover the rich history of early twentieth-century San Francisco that produced this enduring monument to the city's spirit.
