"Continuing east on California, turn left on Battery Street and precede six blocks to Broadway, cross the street and turn right until you reach 1OO-120 Broadway. The plaque is located near the door of 120. The plaque was replaced at this site by the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers as part of the 1996 Sesquicentennial Celebration of the Saints arrival in San Francisco. The plaque was once located in the sidewalk, but was moved after the surroundings were damaged in the 1989 earthquake.

As you look down Broadway toward the Bay and then to the right down Battery to Market Street you can imagine that all of the land you see between these two vistas was under water at the time the Saints arrived." (visit link)
