The tower’s name comes from Lillie Hitchcock Coit, a wealthy public figure who was known to gamble, smoke cigars, and volunteer as a firefighter long before any of those were considered socially acceptable activities for women*. Following her death, Coit bequeathed a third of her estate to San Francisco for the express purpose of “adding to the beauty of the city which I have always loved.” City officials decided to put the funding toward the tower, which was completed in 1933. Today, the 210-foot tower rests on Telegraph Hill, overlooking San Francisco and serving as a beacon for both travelers and residents alike.
