From the Officer’s Club of the Presidio in San Francisco, these solid wood doors were created in the late 1800’s
These solid wood doors were created in the late 1800’s. They were originally hung in the Officer’s Club of the Presidio in San Francisco. They were removed when it was extensively remodeled in 1933-1934. When U.S. troops occupied the post in 1847, they rebuilt the roof of the Spanish Mexican-era adobe. In 1884-1885 a projecting central pavillion-like “assembly room” of wood construction was added to the structure. This is when these doors were added to the structure.
The Presidio has a rich cultural history spanning back to the time of the native Ohlone people. The Spanish arrived in 1776 to establish the northernmost outpost of their empire in western North America. The Presidio then fell under Mexican rule for 24 years before the U.S. Army took control of it in 1846.
Own a piece of history. These doors measure 7′ 4″ by 3′, each. They do have hinge hardware (not original), but do not include any other hardware. They weigh approximately 80 pounds each. We estimate than an entry would need to be built around these doors. We guarantee it would be worth it. These doors are amazing. Price: $3,000.00
