John Griffith "Jack" London (born John Griffith Chaney) was born at this location on January 12, 1876.

The American author who wrote the novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, and the short stories "To Build a Fire", "An Odyssey of the North", and "Love of Life", spent the early years of his life at this location.

The home burned down in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake fire, and the plaque celebrating London was placed here in 1953.
