Cliff House Project

Cliff House Project

Gary Stark’s encyclopedic website is dedicated to photos and historical information on San Francisco’s legendary Cliff House, which was built and rebuilt between 1863 and 2004. The grandest incarnation of the Cliff House was Adolph Sutro’s 1896 wooden palace. Not surprisingly, most of the hundreds of wonderful photographs, postcards, stereoviews, and tintypes on Stark’s site are devoted to that Victorian relic, as well as the fire that destroyed it in 1907. Don’t miss the link in the “Timeline” to a description of the property written in 1864 by Mark Twain.
