2009 Eureka Valley Tour

Beautifully-restored Victorian homes were opened for the 37th interior home tour offered by Victorian Alliance of San Francisco. Once a country neighborhood with large working-class families, Eureka Valley was named for the northerly twin peak which rises above it and extends its shelter. The valley is richly endowed with Victorian houses, exquisitely renovated and lovingly maintained by today's proud residents, blending with the trendy shops and restaurants on Castro Street, its major thoroughfare.

Our tour will include delightful examples of Queen Anne and San Francisco Stick styles, dating from the 1880's to 1910, along with a magnificent Baroque-Queen Anne mansion, an exuberant celebration of Rococo and continental grandeur. A complimentary souvenir program offered histories and descriptions of the homes.
