Lillie Hitchcock Coit came to San Francisco with her parents in 1851. She became the mascot for the "Knickerbocker 5" fire
fighters and in 1863 an honorary member of the company. One third of her fortune was left to the city of San Francisco, and
using this money, Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill was constructed.
