Fodor's Review

The three blocks south of the Haas-Lilienthal House contain a few curiosities of interest to architecture buffs. What at first looks like a stone facade on the Golden Gate Church (1901 Franklin St.) is actually redwood painted white. A handsome Georgian-style residence built in the early 1900s for a coffee merchant sits at 1735 Franklin. On the northeast corner of Franklin and California streets is a Christian Science church; built in the Tuscan revival style, it's noteworthy for its terra-cotta detailing. The Coleman House (1701 Franklin St.) is an impressive twin-turret Queen Anne mansion that was built for a gold-rush mining and lumber baron. Don't miss the large, brilliant-purple stained-glass window on the house's north side.
