Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2638
National Register Number: 66000232
Significance: Building 990 is a small concrete building built in 1948 as storage for flammable materials for the Mine Depot. The Mine Depot was first built in 1908 with a torpedo wharf submarine mine-loading depot, and with its complex of five related buildings. It illustrates this aspect of seacoast defense in the Presidio from the early-to-mid-20th century. Building 990 is the most recently built structure of the group. It is a contributing structure to the Presidio of San Francisco's National Historic Landmark district.
