Once upon a time the Castro District began as Eureka Valley, settled by European homesteaders looking for cheap land to stake out their American dream. From the time of the sixties and seventies, the Castro became an area that continues to dominate and influence San Francisco culture today. The reputable Castro Theater displays the blending of Moorish and art-deco architecture, adding value to the offbeat aesthetic of the Castro District. With the Castro District's history and current climate, there is never a dull moment. It is hard to imagine San Francisco without this integral neighborhood, with landmarks like Dolores Park and Milk Plaza. The Castro District rose out of past political turmoil to become the epicenter of San Francisco life.
