PACHEIGHTS-ghellie pilapil

Pacific Heights was first developed in the 1870s,[7] with small Victorian homes built. Starting around the start of the 20th century, and especially after the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, many were replaced with period homes. Still residential, the area is characterized by painted Victorian style architecture. -Wikipedia
