Mrs. Dr. Charlotte Blake Brown, Mrs. Dr. Martha E. Bucknell, and ten San Francisco women founded Children's Hospital (then called the Pacific Dispensary for Women and Children) on February 26, 1875. From a $30-a-month group of rooms at 520 Taylor Street, the Dispensary moved six times before arriving, in 1887, at its current location at California Street near Maple.
