Haas-Lilienthal House
San Francisco

The Haas-Lilienthal House was designed by Peter R. Schmidt in 1886. The only house of that era open to the public in San Francisco, it beautifully exemplifies upper-middle class life in the Victorian era. Built in the Queen Anne style, the house features prominent open gables, varied styles of shingles and siding, and a turreted corner tower topped by a “witch’s hat” roof.
