1. The New Cliff House Marker
Inscription. For nearly 150 years generations of visitors have traveled to the Cliff House to experience the magnificent natural setting and to enjoy recreation. There have been three different Cliff Houses on this site. The first two were destroyed by fire. The third one, built in 1909, has been remodeled several times and fallen into disrepair. The new building improvements now underway will renovate the original three-story 1909 Cliff House and add a new north wing. Site improvements include renovation of the existing Cliff Terrace and the addition of new observation decks. During construction the restaurant and gift shop will remain open. The Cliff House will be under construction through Summer 2004. Visit the Golden Gate National Recreation Area web site at www.nps.gov/goga/clho/project for more detailed information.
