This large house built in the 1880’s has been preserved with most of its original decorations and furnishings. Guided tours by knowledgeable and friendly docent. Unfortunately the house opening hours are few and far between.

Much-loved icon of old San Francisco, a survivor of the '06 earthquake and fire. Just a gorgeous old building on display.

Frozen in time (late 19th century) the Haas-Lilienthal house is one of the very few classic San Francisco Victorian homes that has maintained both it's original exterior AND interior. If you're a history buff...especially a San Francisco history buff...you'll love this window on how the...More

The history of San Francisco is so fascinating and this home adds it's special touch to the big picture of "the city by the bay". The families, the times, the social life, the success and the trauma...it's all here. Wonderful tour with well versed docents....More

We lived across the street from the Haas - tour companies often take groups through. Nice group of docents to explain the fascinating history.

Very interesting tour of a Victorian home which three generations of German-Jewish-Americans have lived in. It was great to see how people in San Francisco did things back then. From the antique furniture to the really awesome kitchen and bathrooms, it was a great experience....More

We recently took a tour of the Haas-Lilienthal House. It is a must see attraction. What a beautiful piece of architecture! The Victorian/Queen Anne house was built in 1886 and survived both the 1906 and the 1989 earthquakes. The details inside are second to none....More
