The Bay Area’s Military History Shown in a Photo – Not Much Going on in Marin County at Hill 88 and Mt. Tam

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Well, here’s an update to this old post from 2008. The big change since then has been the arrival of the Presidio Landmark apartments. Enjoy:

In the foreground we see the Presidio’s now-abandoned Public Health Service Hospital (PHSH), site of the old U.S. Marine Hospital and Defense Language Institute.

On the left further back in Marin is Hill 88, former site of Integrated Fire Control facility SF-88C Wolf Ridge that used to house W31 nuclear warheads and Nike Ajax / Nike Hercules defensive missiles

And on the right up high is the West Peak of Mount Tamalpais, former home of Mill Valley Air Force Station.

Not much going on at these places these days.
