U.S. Court of Appeals Building
Seventh & Mission streets
This imposing granite edifice was designed in the 1890s by James Knox Taylor, chief architect for the U.S. Treasury Department, to house the federal courts and the main San Francisco post office. When it opened in 1905, Sunset magazine called it the Versailles of the West.
The tour, arranged by BAHA board member Sally Sachs, is an opportunity to view this opulent building, discover its history and architecture, and learn about the functioning of the court. Senior Circuit Judge John T. Noonan, Jr. will receive tour goers in his chambers, rarely seen by the public.
See some photos from our 2006 tour of the building.
The tour is free of charge. To reserve your place, please contact BAHA by e-mail.
