About the Haas-Lilienthal House: A popular destination among international tourists, the Haas-Lilienthal House has a rich history and is a superb example of upper middle-class Victorian living. Built by William Haas in 1886 for his wife and children, the house survived the 1906 Earthquake and Fire and has stood the test of time remarkably well.
Designed by Peter Schmidt, the house at 2007 Franklin Street is an exemplary example of the Queen Anne style with its elaborate wooden gables, circular corner tower, and rich ornamentation.
The Haas-Lilienthal House was recently named a “National Treasure” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
