Overlooking the north bay, Coit tower sits atop Telegraph Hill and is one of San Francisco's most famous landmarks. Coit Tower is easily seen from many areas and in turn also provides spectacular views of the city. Coit Tower was constructed with funds donated by Lillie Hitchcock Coit, a philanthropist who bequeathed a third of her fortune to the city and county of San Francisco for beautification. Architect Arthur Brown designed the tower as a 210 feet high fluted pillar and it was completed in 1933. The ground level of the tower features beautiful murals by artists depicting the Great Depression.
