: Meiggs' Wharf was completed 1853. How long did it operate? My REAL question is what year did they start to fill in around the wharf? ...

"The seawall was started in late 1878 and completed by 1883. The seawall was closed and the filling of the enclosed area was completed in 1893, cutting Meigg's Wharf & Warner's Cobweb Palace off from the Bay." - James Smith, author of "San Francisco’s Lost Landmarks".
