Touring the Historic Browning Courthouse
3:00 p.m. | Thursday, February 16, 2017
Completed in 1905, the James R. Browning United States Court of Appeals Building was built to fill San Francisco’s dire need for a federal presence. Having survived both the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes, the building was restored and given a complete seismic retrofit before reopening in 1996. Today, this fully operational landmark remains one of the best examples of American Renaissance architecture in the country. Join us for a tour of this historic building, and get up close with the base isolators that will enable it to survive the city’s next big quake. Generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
