Cow Hollow is a generally affluent neighborhood located between The Presidio and Russian Hill with Pacific Heights on one side and the Marina District on the other.
Cow Hollow was once a settlement for fisherman as the coast was much closer than it is now. In 1849 Cow Hollow was a valley filled with grazing cattle, which is where it got its name. The valley had a large freshwater pond that was fed by several creeks. In first dairy was built in 1861 and many followed.
By 1890, there were roughly 800 cows roaming the area. The Chinese kept large vegetable gardens in the area; raising produce to peddle on the street or sell to local cooks.
Today Cow Hollow is a trendy area packed with apartment buildings inhabited by young professionals. Union Street is the main shopping thoroughfare and is known for its restaurants, boutiques, health spas and wellness centers.
