About the Neighborhood

The Fillmore is a subset of Western Addition. Its borders are typically considered to be Van Ness Avenue, Divisidero Street, Grove Street and Geary Boulevard. To address and prevent overcrowding, the Fillmore neighborhood was created in the 1880s and was temporarily considered San Francisco’s downtown after the 1906 earthquake. Source: Wikipedia

Fun Fact: After World War II, Fillmore Street was home to some of the most popular jazz clubs in the country. Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday and Duke Ellington all performed at these clubs to an audience that included Marilyn Monroe, Clint Eastwood and Sammy Davis Jr. Source: Fillmore Jazz Festival
