The 49ers have called these venues home over their storied history, which dates back to 1946.

In the rich history that exists for professional sports in the Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers have called a few places "home."

While their current venue, Levi's Stadium, is barely a decade old now, there are a couple other venues that played host to the red and gold since their founding in 1946.

As we take a look back at these sites, lightning has struck the same place a few times as history has been made multiple times at each.

No. 1: Kezar Stadium (1950-1970)

Located in the actual city limits of San Francisco, the construction for Kezar Stadium began in 1924 when builders first broke ground.

Kezar Stadium opened on May 2, 1925.

Just under 100 years ago, the stadium originally cost $300,000. In today's market, that would translate to almost $5.5 million.

Proposed by Jack Spaulding, the first plans were seat 50,000 guests. Coming in with about a third of the cost, a $100,000 donation from Mary Kezar was received with the intent to honor her mother and uncles who were instrumental in the city's development and early history.

In 1960, the Oakland Raiders played their first few home games there in addition to the following season. The 49ers then played in Kezar Stadium for 25 seasons until 1970.

The last NFL game played here was the NFC Championship on Jan. 3, 1970. San Francisco would fall just short to the Dallas Cowboys, 17-10.

In 1971, the movie Dirty Harry filmed parts of the film at Kezar Stadium. Concerts by artists such as Bob Dylan, Led Zepplin, The Grateful Dead, Neil Young and more performed here, too.

No. 2: Candlestick Park (1971-2013)

Ground was broken on Candlestick Park in 1958. On April 12, 1960, former President Richard Nixon threw out the first pitch during the San Francisco Giants game that day.

From 1970 through 1978, the field used artificial turf. After 1978, it was restored to natural grass.

For 43 seasons, the Niners called Candlestick Park home.

One of the most memorable moments captured here was "The Catch." Quarterback Joe Montana threw a game-altering touchdown pass to receiver Dwight Clark in the 1982 NFC Championship game.

A similar play, "The Catch II," happened when quarterback Steve Young connected with wide receiver Terrell Owens in the end zone, and this score gave the 49ers the win over the Green Bay Packers in the 1998 Wild Card Round.

Super Bowl XXXIII was awarded to San Francisco's Candlestick Park. However, is was later relocated to Miami after ample renovations were not made to accommodate the booking.

Of the eight NFC Championship games played in Candlestick Park, the 49ers split winning half of them. Two of those victories were over the Cowboys.

By the end of the 2013 season, there were 36 Monday Night Football games played here. At the time, that was the record in the NFL.

No. 3: Stanford Stadium (1985 and 1989)

Though this facility does not come to mind for most of the 49ers fanbase, we are counting it on the list.

Built in 1920 for the cost of $200,000, the old venue for one of California's most recognizable colleges was later demolished almost 85 years later for the current Stanford Stadium.

While the original venue was upright, San Francisco hosted the Super Bowl on Jan. 20, 1985. The 49ers would go on to win Super Bowl XIX against the Miami Dolphins, 38-16.

In October of 1989, the contest between the Niners and the visiting New England Patriots was moved from Candlestick Park to the original Stanford Stadium. On Oct. 17, 1989, damage from the Loma Prieta earthquake left the NFL no choice but to change the site for this game.

No. 4: Levi's Stadium (2014 - current)

Located in Santa Clara, California, the 49ers declared Levi's Stadium their new home. Santa Clara is just northwest of San Jose and about 40 miles south of San Francisco.

The first regular-season game at Levi Stadium was on Sept. 14, 2014. In front of a record crowd of 70,799, the Niners lost a close game against their guest, the Chicago Bears, 28-20.

After a full 10-season decade at Levi's, San Francisco has gone 40-41 at home. Since 2021, the 49ers have gone 17-8 at Levi Stadium. A pair of robust seasons in 2020 and 2016 are the major outliers (1-7 at home).

On March 29, 2015, WrestleMania 31 was also held here. Multiple FIFA World Cup games will take place at Levi's Stadium, too, the same year.

Levi Stadium is set to be the host for Super Bowl LX in 2026, and it previously hosted Super Bowl 50 where the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers.

After earning a spot in this past season's Super Bowl and looking primed to do so again, it is quite possible the Niners can become the first and only team to win more than one Super Bowl in their own city.
