Sunday, Oct 16th: Step Back in Time on SF Victorian House Tour

Here’s a once-a-year opportunity to step inside Victorian houses that come out of the very early 1900’s. The Victorian Alliance is staging its 44th Annual House Tour this Sunday, October 16th, from 1pm to 5pm. The walking tour is self-guided.

The Victorians being visited this year are around the Duboce Park and in the Duboce Triangle. As a special feature this year a Victorian church is open to the tour, including gorgeous stained glass windows and finely crafted woodwork in the church’s sanctuary. Complimentary refreshments are served in the church and the Alliance’s gift shop will be set up for early Christmas shopping.

An illustrated program is provided to the tour walkers. Shoes should be comfortable and clothing layered. Be prepared to climb stairs to the home’s upper floors. The Alliance urges using public transportation as street parking is limited.

This is a fundraising event that benefits The Victorian Alliance Grant Program. This program has awarded more than $350,000 to historic preservation projects since the organization’s founding in1973.
