Few American cities can boast of such vibrant and dynamic architecture as San Francisco. Within the city, few styles are as defining as the Queen Anne-style Victorians. The Haas-Lilienthal House, built in 1886, captures all the ornate majesty of the period.
The house is authentically furnished and features elaborate gables and a circular corner tower. Your guide on this one-hour tour will give a complete introduction to the Victorian architecture prevalent throughout the city, as well as the history of this house and its inhabitants.

Comments about Smart Destinations Haas-Lilienthal House:
This is supposedly the only Victorian house in the city that's open to the public. It's a great tour to see the inside of one of San Francisco's oldest houses. The architecture is special, but the furnishings inside are even more interesting. Just be aware that this is a guided tour. You aren't able to move about the house by yourself, which is a bummer but I understand that they have to keep everything secure. Pretty cool to see the crack caused by the earthquake.
