Presidio Terrace in San Francisco is a neighborhood that was created for wealthy residents after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, next to the newly wooded Presidio. Presidio Terrace originally was marketed to white residents only: "There is only one spot in San Francisco where only Caucasians are permitted to buy or lease real estate or where they may reside. That place is Presidio Terrace." (advertisement), a strategy which later was discontinued with the integration of the city's neighborhoods. Architectural styles in the area include Beaux-Arts, Mission Revival, and Tudor Revival.
