    Earthquake Shacks - Tiny House Blog - Small House Living
    When the camps began closing in August 1907, refugees hauled cottages to private lots, and often cobbled together two or more to form larger residences. Of the 5,343 moved from the camps only a handful are certified to still be standing.

    Earthquake cottages came back in the public eye in the early 1980s, when “shack activist” Jane F. Cryan began lobbying for their preservation. Her efforts created City Landmark #171, a complex of four shacks at 1227 - 24th Avenue, and helped rescue two others that are on public display in the Presidio of San Francisco.
