Founded in June 1776, the old Mission Dolores is the oldest building in San Francisco. Though the mission was named Misión San Francisco de Asís, because it was near Arroyo de los Dolores (or "the Creek of Sorrows"), it was commonly described as "Mission Dolores."

It's also in a fun neighborhood in San Francisco. Wonderful linen colors again.
