The Transbay Joint Powers Authority is pleased to sponsor the Transbay Archaeology Exhibit, which is currently on display in the lobby of 201 Mission Street, where TJPA’s offices are located, through the end of June 2013.
This exhibit has been on tour around the Bay Area and will continue at various locations. After initially opening at 201 Mission Street in San Francisco on December 2, 2011, the exhibit has already been displayed at MTC’s headquarters, AC Transit’s headquarters, and the Caltrans District 4 offices.
As the construction of the Transbay Transit Center moves ahead, we are pleased to share with our project neighbors and Bay Area residents some of the amazing artifacts we have found along the way. This exhibit will feature a variety of items discovered within the footprint of the project site that illuminate the rich history of San Francisco’s gold rush era. Recovered artifacts show the way 19th Century residents of the South of Market neighborhood lived, worked and played, including industrial tools, household items and remnants of neighborhood businesses.
Monday – Friday from 9 AM – 5 PM
201 Mission Street lobby
San Francisco, CA 94105
