About the Mission Armory Community Center:
Mission Bazaar is proud to present the first public event at the historic San Francisco Armory in over thirty years. This 200,000 square foot reproduction Moorish Castle was completed in 1914 and was used as a National Guard facility until 1976. It is full of period detail including cavernous dungeon-like basements, stone staircases, sweeping corridors, and a gigantic drill court spanning almost an acre. The Armory was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978 and has been out of official use since this time. The current owners plan to revive this historic building in consideration of gentrification, and social and environmental concerns while restoring and renovating The Armory to its original splendor, style and beauty.
The Mission Armory Community Center is located at 1800 Mission Street, San Francisco 94103, at the corner of 14th Street and Mission. The main entrance is located on 14th Street. An ADA accessible entrance is located on 14th Street.
