Originally part of Rancho San Miguel, Adolph Sutro bought this land in 1880. Twelve years after his death, his heirs hired the real estate firm, Baldwin & Howell to appraise the land.

After completing the survey, A. S. Baldwin organized a company to purchase the rancho lands for the creation of master-planned housing developments. The city’s Twin Peaks Tunnel streetcar project coincided with the plans of Baldwin’s new Residential Development Company. The Municipal Railway would open up the land “West of Twin Peaks” with streetcar lines, and the Residential Development Company would sell tracts of land to companies interested in creating high-end homes for new residents - making West of Twin Peaks neighborhood among the last to be developed in San Francisco.

Established neighborhoods within the West of Twin Peaks neighborhood include Balboa Terrace, Forest Hill, Forest Knolls, Midtown Terrace, Miraloma Park, Mount Davidson Manor, Sherwood Forest, St. Francis Wood, West Portal, Westwood Highlands, and Westwood Park.
