Significance: The original St. Patrick's Church, said to have been prefabricated and shipped around the Horn ca. 1851; and erected on Market Street. It was moved in 1891 to its present site on Eddy Street and became the first Holy Cross Parish Church. When the present Holy Cross Church was completed in 1899, it became Holy Cross Parish Hall. The building is of a modest Classical Revival design, a rare survivor of the early 1850s in San Francisco. It retains the original character and detail except that windows have been installed over the entrance interrupting the corona of the pediment; and glazing of windows has been changed. The interior, also, has been altered to accommodate its new function.
