Haas Lilienthal House

Sunday, December 2, 2007

We started the season with a visit to the Haas-Lilienthal Holiday Open House in Pacific Heights. We got a mini-tour of this historic Queen-Anne style Victorian house built in 1886. It is one of the buildings that survived the earthquake-caused fires of 1906.

The most interesting room was the bathroom which still had the old fixtures and a hair curling iron contraption setup that looked dangerous.

Keith especially liked the standard gauge train set which was formerly setup in the attic now in the basement. It was a treat to see these bigger sized trains running around the track.

Syd liked the children's room. She got to see a phonograph player with an archaic record in place.
