(Click Photo to Zoom)
San Francisco Landmark #224
Schubert Hall
2099 Pacific Avenue At Laguna
Pacific Heights
Built 1905

Schubert Hall, which is built of wood and stucco, was inspired by Baroque European buildings of stone or brick. It was commissioned by John D. Spreckels, Jr., as a wedding present for his son. The elder Spreckels lived in an even grander house just up the hill on Washington Street (San Francisco Landmark 197).

Behind Schubert Hall, and party visible in the photograph, is the Whittier Mansion (San Francisco Landmark 75). Next door to Schubert Hall is a stucco Georgian Revival mansion which the younger Spreckels used as a guest house for Schubert Hall.
