information about Victorian Houses - Painted Ladies
You've probably seen a photograph of the six beautifully restored Victorian houses against the backdrop of the San Francisco skyline. It's one of the classic images of San Francisco. From 1850 to 1900, 48,000 houses in the range of styles that we now call "Victorian" were built to accommodate the city's burgeoning population. Many of these houses were lost in the great fire that followed the 1906 earthquake, and others were torn down over the years to makes way for new development. However, thousands of these elegant homes still grace the streets of San Francisco just waiting to be discovered and admired. Because the westward spread of the 1906 fire was halted at Van Ness Avenue, the neighborhoods west of that line, including Pacific Heights, the Western Addition, the Fillmore, and the Haight, offer the best opportunity for finding the surviving jewels.
