What Cheer House -- August 27, 2013

This plaque, at Leidsdorff and Sacramento, marks the site of the What Cheer House, a famous San Francisco tea-total hotel founded by Robert Woodward, who later created Woodward's Gardens.

What Cheer House later became a generic name in 19th Century California for hotels that did not serve or sell alcohol.
