1. The Lapidos House Marker
Inscription.  Built by developer C. More Hare in 1888, this house was one of four constructed on McHutchison Creek, now Jersey Street. In 122 it has had but eight owners. The early San Francisco years merchant prince, Israel Kaufman, grandfather of the current owner, lived here until the Great Earthquake of 1906. From 1974 to 1978 it was an integral part of the Noe Valley red light district. The current owner, Jack Lapidos, purchased the house in 1978 and expanded it to its current state. A devoted patriot, a U.S. flag is flown at all times.
 
Erected by Noe Valley Historical Society.
