The Victorian Alliance of San Francisco announces its first ever virtual historic house tour, Open Victorians, a free online experience that launches October 5. See a preview here

You are invited to celebrate cultural preservation of San Francisco in a new way.  These first-time ever video tours provide close-up encounters with Victorian-era settings and the people who’ve cared for and restored iconic San Francisco homes.

Every few days October 5–23 , 2020, we’re posting a new theme video, culminating in a live webinar event October 25th featuring leaders of preservation organizations from throughout the nation, sharing their ideas to inspire the next generation of passionate preservationists. All free. You can sign up here to receive reminders of the upcoming videos, launching, and webinar.

You’ll meet homeowners and artisans. Hear renovation tales. See decorative finishes, eccentricities, and modern living in a Victorian setting. Learn how to preserve and share these cultural treasures.

Victorians were curious and adopted new technologies of their day. The Victorian Alliance of San Francisco also communicates with today’s tools to inspire you.

Connect with us in any way you wish. Volunteer, attend a lecture, be a member, be a donor, or even create your own grassroots historic preservation group where you live. The Alliance is here to support your  passion for architectural Victorian heritage.

We hope you’ll also be passionate to preserve the architectural Victorian heritage, the unique landscape of San Francisco.
