description

Summary

Significance: Building 1049 is significant as an element built in conformance with the 1899 pavilion plan of Letterman Hospital and as a rare and exemplary surviving example of a ward pavilion in the United States. Originally with a bakery downstairs and ward upstairs, it is an unusual example of a mixed-use building whose orderly, symmetrical external appearance belies its diverse functions. Historically, building 1049 is significant as part of the build-up of Letterman Hospital in World War I. In the context of the hospital as a whole, it is associated with Letterman's leading role as an Army hospital in the United States in World War I, between the wars, and during and after World War II. Building 1049 is a contributing structure to the Presidio of San Francisco National Historic Landmark district.
