About Ghirardelli Square:
Domingo Ghirardelli purchased the entire city block in 1893 to headquarter the Ghirardelli Chocolate Company. The 15-foot-high illuminated Ghirardelli mega-sign was added in 1923. In the early 60s the company was bought by the Golden Macaroni Company which moved the headquarters to San Leandro and put the Square up for sale. In order to prevent the land from becoming apartments, the Roth family bought the Square and converted the historic brick spaces to an integrated retail and restaurant complex in what would be the first successful, major adaptive re-use project in the U.S. It opened in 1964. In 1982, the Square was added to the National Historic Register. For more information visit http://www.ghirardellisq.com/.
