San Francisco Landmarks
This Italianate house was built for Hugo Rothschild. It stood proudly in a distinguished row of single-family residences, now gone.
Just across the street was the spectacular St. Paulus Lutheran Church, also gone.
From very early in its existence the Rothschild House appears to have been used as a rooming house then apartments. It has been rehabilitated and restored to a single family dwelling.
This is a diminished neighborhood, but it must have been lovely at its prime.
