Located near Fisherman's Wharf, this popular retail square and tourist destination offers more than chocolate, although its history began with the beloved confection. The square dates back to 1893 when Domingo Ghirardelli purchased the whole city block for the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company headquarters. When the company was acquired in the early 1960s, the headquarters were moved, and famous San Franciscan, William Roth, and his mother bought the square. The historic brick structures were converted into an integrated restaurant and retail complex, which was the first major adaptive re-use project in the US. In 1982, the square was listed on the National Register for Historic Places.
