I enjoy walking through Russian Hill on my way to North Beach and admire the architecture of the fine homes you see along the way with restaurants, shops and picturesque streets of views to the Bay.
” The neighborhood got its name when gold rushers found seven Cyrillic-inscribed gravestones at the top of the hill. Consensus on the identity of the Russian men buried there — they were reputed to be anything from sailors to fur trappers — was never reached, the gravestones disappeared in the late 1800s and the Russian influence has long since dissipated”. *
I enjoy selling homes in Russian Hill with loads of charm and history in this picturesque district. It’s one of the most desireable view neighborhoods in San Francisco!
