"The former N. Gray & Company Funeral Home is significant as an early survivng example of a San Francisco mortuary and as a rare example of a Georgian Revival building in San Francisco. Originally founded in 1850 by Nathaniel Gray, N. Gray & Company (originally know as N. Gray Undertakers) was San Francisco's oldest mortuary business when it closed in 1980. Nathaniel Gray became known in San Francisco as a leading businessman, philanthropist, and civic leader. In 1919, N. Gray & Company commissioned engineer James. H. Hjul to construct a two-story, wood-frame building on the southwest corner of Post and Divisadero Streets. From 1919 to 1981, the building at 1545 Divisadero Street served as the main headquarters for N.Gray & Company. In 1980, N. Gray & Company was sold to their competitors, Halsted & Company. In 2001, 1545 Divisadero Street was sold to the Bernard Osher Foundation, which later donated the building to the University of California. From 1995 to 2003, the University of California, Mount Zion campus utilized the building as medical office space, until its closure in 2003. Currently, the building is vacant."--P. 1.
