A 49ers endzone at Candlestick Park.

When you think of Candlestick Park, what memories stand out? Dwight Clark's famous 1982 touchdown catch against the Cowboys? Or when the Loma Prieta earthquake interrupted the 1989 World Series? Perhaps it's the last-ever Beatles concert? Or maybe all you can remember is trying to stay warm in the frigid year-round wind. Monday will be the last regular season 49ers game at Candlestick Park before it closes for good. We'll look back at the illustrious history of the stadium.
