Swedish American Hall
San Francisco Landmark No. 247
At the turn of the 20th Century, this neighborhood was a large Scandinavian enclave. The hall housed businesses serving the community, including Cafe Du Nord, opened in 1908, which today is among San Francisco's oldest saloons and restaurants.
Designed By Master Architect August Nordin in the
Arts & Craft Style, the architectural finishes demonstrate a
superior level of craftsmanship in a rich palate of materials
and ornament. Interior lodge rooms named after Norse gods
feature soaring truss work and intricate wood detailing.
Erected 2015 by Historic Preservation Commission. (Marker Number 247.)
