The Reason Why A Lot Of People Are Leaving San Francisco Might Surprise You
Peoples Temple headquarters, 1859 Geary Blvd., San Francisco, 1978

The Peoples Temple, the new religious movement which came to be known for the mass killings at Jonestown, was headquartered in San Francisco, California, United States from the early to mid-1970s until the Temple's move to Guyana in 1977. During this period, the Temple and its founder, Reverend Jim Jones, rose to national prominence thanks to Jones' interest in social and political causes, and wielded a significant amount of influence in San Francisco's city government.
