SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A day after rejecting a museum proposal by George Lucas, the stewards of national park land at the base of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge have offered the "Star Wars" creator a new location.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Presidio Trust is offering Lucas a site next to his Letterman Digital Arts Center to house his collection of Americana art and Hollywood memorabilia.

The spot is just west of the old Letterman Hospital building, which now houses Lucasfilm's special-effects and game units as well as its corporate offices.

A spokesman for Lucas says the director will look at the new location but is also entertaining offers from other cities.

On Monday the trust's seven-member board voted unanimously against Lucas' plan for an 8-acre site overlooking San Francisco Bay.
