This building was the superintendent's office at the Tubbs company factory or ropewalk. This pioneer industrial factory was located on Iowa Street in the Portero district from 1856 until 1963.

Alfred Tubbs arrived in San Francisco in 1850, and was active in the whaling business and as a ship chandler. Seeing a need for locally produced rope, he established the Tubbs ropewalk in 1856.
In the mid-1960s the company donated the building and the original ropemaking machinery to the Maritime Museum. The building, constructed in the 1850s, is preserved as an example of early San Francisco industrial architecture
