There's more than 150 years of San Francisco history living behind these doors.
Relics of old SF, these homes are markers in time, housing memories from the Gold Rush and Prohibition—you know, back when you might have had a well in your backyard and a carriage house for your horse-drawn buggy. Take a tour of the most venerable houses still standing in the city.
Feusier Octagon House (1858)
In the mid-19th century, eight-sided houses were all the rage. The big idea: that every room could get sunlight. Octagon houses were also touted as being cheaper to build, easier to heat and cool, and as maximizing living space. Located at 1067 Green Street, the Feusier residence is one of just two remaining octagon houses in SF. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
