San Francisco Architectural Heritage [CA]

San Francisco Architectural Heritage seeks to preserve and share the history of San Francisco's architectural structures. The society operates the Haas-Lilienthal House, built 1886. It is the only Queen Anne-style Victorian in the country to offer tours regularly. The interior is decorated in period style.

The organization offers Haas-Lilienthal House tours, neighborhood tours, and an educational program for students. This program consists of a teacher's workshop, a traveling trunk, a treasure hunt tour of a Victorian neighborhood, and a tour of the Haas-Lilienthal House. Teachers must be Heritage-trained to participate in the educational programming. The website offers interior photographs and floor plans of the Haas-Lilienthal House.
