The project's primary goal is to provide a full, accurate and current inventory of the unique features of this historic district in order to formulate and implement an effective conservation and rehabilitation program. Historical resources include buildings, sites, landscapes, and streetscapes, among other things. Historic resources can be categorized into five major groups: (1) structures; (2) districts; (3) sites; (4) objects; and (5) collections. The San Francisco Presidio contains a vast array of structures that date from the late 18th century until the present. Examples of these structures include military buildings, houses, buildings for business purposes, and many other buildings. Examples of districts, sites, and objects include but are not limited to: Fort Ross, the Indian village, the Russian cemetery, the shoreline, the Octagon House, the Presidio Golf Course, the Presidio post office, and the original 1847 Presidio of San Francisco. The San Francisco Presidio contains a wealth of cultural resources including collections that can be characterized as both tangible and intangible. Tangible cultural resources include objects, documents, and other types of materials (such as books and newspapers) that are not themselves buildings, but which relate to the development of the area and the institution (i.e., the Presidio). Intangible cultural resources include activities, values, rituals, beliefs, and knowledge passed on from generation to generation.

It operated as a military post until March 17, 1846, when it was turned over to the Department of War for conversion to a civilian post. The military retreated to Point Loma, California on December 1, 1848.
