Telegraph Hill Parks History

The Telegraph Hill Parks opened in 1895.

The Telegraph Hill Parks were named after the Semaphore telegraph. During Britain's war with France a quicker form of communication was needed than by using horseback so the Semaphore Telegraph system was created. This involved buildings on prominent hills passing messages along a chain by using a code system.
