information about Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill
Coit Tower stands at the top of Telegraph Hill. It offers some amazing views of San Francisco and is a monument built in honor of the city's volunteer firemen, with an observation deck that provides a great view of San Francisco. You can see all points of the city and both main bridges. The Coit Tower was built in 1933 with funds from Lillie Hitchcock Coit, an eccentric personality who was best known for her support of the local firemen. She left a portion of her fortune for the beautification of the city. The result was the Coit Tower, which is both a memorial for Lillie Hitchcock Coit and for the San Francisco firemen. The concrete tower was constructed by Arthur Brown Jr., who also built the beautiful City Hall.
