An Historic American Building

In 1919, N.Gray & Company commissioned engineer James H. Hjul to construct a two-story, wood-frame building on the southwest corner of Post and Divisadero Streets. A rare example of Georgian Revival architecture in San Francisco, the building at 1545 Divisadero Street served as the main headquarters for N. Gray & Company until 1981.

The Georgian Revival style was an updated version of the original Colonial Georgian house and was popular on the East Coast in the late 1890s. Georgian Revival architecture is characterized by Palladian windows, Flemish bond brickwork, classical columns and pilasters, and simple rectilinear plans and elevations.

In 2001, 1545 Divisadero Street was sold to the Bernard Osher Foundation which later donated the building to the University of California. From 1995 to 2003, the University of California, Mount Zion campus utilized the building as medical office space, until its closure in 2003. For more information regarding this historic building please visit the official UCSF Library website.
