On heavily forested land remote from developed San Francisco, the Mason-McDuffie Company sought in 1912 to create a residence park that embodied the highest ideals of early twentieth century landscaping and architecture. St. Francis Wood attracted some of the Bay Area's most accomplished designers and architects, from John Galen Howard to Henry Gutterson to Julia Morgan, and despite early difficulties, flowered into one of the country's most successful examples of a City Beautiful "garden suburb."
