This past Monday I went to the Old Mint Building on 5th Street and Mission in San Francisco to view the space for an upcoming fashion show.  The building is beautiful and has so much history. In 1961 the Old Mint was declared a National Historic Landmark. The federal government began using it as office space in 1972. Then, in 1994, the Treasury Department closed the building. In 2003, the federal government sold the Old Mint to the city of San Francisco. The city then proceeded to give the building over to the San Francisco Museum and Historical Society, and they are now in the  plans of turning the Old Mint into the San Francisco History Museum. Unfortunately, the building does not have enough space to host a fashion show of 500+ people in one room, but the building itself would be lovely to have another event at. The architecture work is absolutely stunning and it is definitely worth visiting.
