Silver Crystal Springs* reservoir that supplies much of the water for San Francisco. The reservoir was once owned by William Bourn who built the Filoli estate just south of the reservoir. Filoli was purchased in 1937 by William and Lurline Roth. It was Lurline Roth’s father, William Matson, who started the Matson shipping line. Lurline was named after a ship in the Matson fleet rather than the ship being named after her. Matson has had a Lurline in its fleet since its beginning.
* Updated – I think Auto-Correct got me and I didn’t notice it – I intended to write “Crystal Springs,” not Silver Springs. See the comments below. “Chris-to-Fear” gives a link to the Nike missile site.
