Whittier Mansion

Whittier Mansion Review

With a Spanish-tile roof and scrolled bay windows on all four sides, this is one of the most elegant 19th-century houses in the state. Unlike other grand mansions lost in the 1906 quake, the Whittier Mansion was built so solidly that only a chimney toppled over during the disaster. Built by William Franklin Whittier, the founder of (what became) PG&E, the house served as the German consulate during the Nazi period. Legend has it that the house is haunted.
