Revived San Francisco host 1915 world's fair!The Panama Pacific International Exposition, 635 acres of grand imagination, proclaimed to the world that San Francisco was fully recovered from the 1906 earthquake. Exhibition-filled palaces were built on filled marshlands between Fort Mason and the Presidio (now the Marina district). Enormous replicas of Yellowstone Park and the Grand Canyon were constructed here at Fort Mason - a likely location, given the army's role as steward of national parks at the time. The nine month fair celebrated the opening of the Panama Canal and coincided with the opening of the army's new shipping facility at lower Fort Mason.
