Golden Gate National Recreation Area
Golden Gate National Recreation Area is home to Alcatraz Island, the site of pre-Civil War fortifications, and the nation’s first military prison. It was also the site of the occupation that helped ignite the movement for American Indian self-determination.
More than 1.5 million visitors pass annually through the 1857 Alcatraz Guardhouse, a place that is also significant as the first permanent U.S. defensive facility in San Francisco Bay.
