Early Eureka Valley residents were mostly Irish, German and Scandinavian immigrants who established pleasant, working-class neighborhoods of Victorian and Edwardian homes. After World War II, gay baby boomers were drawn to this tolerant city and its numerous white-collar jobs. More and more new residents took advantage of affordable housing and helped change Eureka Valley into “the Castro.” Castro Village houses many excellent restaurants, bars and shops, and is considered the heart of gay life in San Francisco. Another quaint neighborhood nestled in the lowland between Twin Peaks and Diamond Heights is Noe Valley, which was named after Jose de Jesus Noe, a Spanish colonist and former mayor of San Francisco.
The Mission District is one of the most vibrant parts of San Francisco. Its carefully preserved history dates back to the Spanish missionaries, who settled the area and established Mission Dolores. Mission Dolores is the city’s oldest structure and the sixth Franciscan mission along El Camino Real. The neighborhood of Dolores Heights is perched on the slopes and hills of Dolores Street, which is lined by palm trees and luxurious, mansion-style homes.
