From the plaque:

On July 9, 1846, in the early morning, in "the days when the water came up to Montgomery Street," Commander John B. Montgomery - for whom Montgomery Street was named - landed near this spot from the U.S. Sloop-of-War "Portsmouth," to raise the Stars and Stripes on the Plaza, now Portsmouth Square, one block to the west.

Tablet placed by the Native Sons of the Golden West. 1915.
