San Francisco Landmark No. 69
2007 Franklin Street
Designed by architect Peter R. Schmidt in 1886 for German-Jewish wholesale-grocery merchant William Haas and his family, the Haas-Lilienthal House is the city's only victorian-era home open to the public. Built in the Queen Anne style, the house exemplifies turn-of-the-century family life and features prominent gables, varied styles of shingles and siding, and a turreted corner tower topped by a "witch's cap” roof. Constructed of redwood and fir, the house withstood both the 1906 and 1989 earthquakes with only minor damage. It has been home to San Francisco Heritage, a citywide preservation-advocacy organization, since 1973.
