Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 13, 1966):
This, the only Nob Hill mansion to survive the earthquake and fire of 1906, was the residence of one of the bonanza kings of the Nevada Comstock Lode. James Clair Flood (1825-1889) operated a saloon when he came to San Francisco in 1849, but by shrewd dealing in the stock exchange and the judicious exploration and development of mines--the Comstock Mine in particular--he amassed a tremendous fortune.

Building and its historic fabric have been carefully maintained by current owner. Property is in excellent condition.

There are no changes to the landmark.
