Description

Rarely do you find Victorian homes this well maintained, but the Hass-Lilienthal House has aged with grace. Built in 1886, the Queen Anne Victorian giant is also the home to San Francisco Architecture Heritage, a local non-profit committed to, as the name suggests, protecting the architecture of the old town by the bay. Inside Haas-Lilienthat, much of the original stylings remain -- wallpaper, furniture, cornices, and more. Docents provide informative guided tours that last about an hour, and you'll certainly learn a thing or two about the Victorian era in San Franciscan architecture, and see some of the signs of the famous 1906 earthquake and fire that took about half of the city with it. The house makes a nice, quick visit for the architecture-lover in your group, and is enjoyable for everyone else to boot.
