The Yelamu Ohlone clan inhabited Lands End before Spanish settlement started in 1776.After the Gold Rush, business people structured the new Cliff House as a chic hotel for the well off. A privately owned business developed another street called Point Lobos Avenue. By the 1860s, a steed drawn stagecoach made the excursion each Sunday from swarmed downtown San Francisco out to Lands End.
During the 1880s, tycoon Adolph Sutro built a traveler steam train from downtown to Lands End for the reasonable admission of 5¢.In 1891, an old excavator called Charles Jackson reported that he had found a vein of bituminous coal under the bluffs at Baker Beach, on Sutro's territory; Sutro had a passage burrowed 200 feet under the railroad track and affirmed the find, however the mine was never misused and is difficult to get to today because of landslides.
