Red Victorian Bed & Breakfast, Peaceful World Center and Cafe San Francisco Haight Ashbury's Living Museum of the Peace Movement - A Peace Arts Center and Gathering Place


The Red Victorian is the only surviving turn of the 20th century hotel on Haight Street.


It was built in 1904 as an upstairs country resort hotel. People came from San Francisco by the Market Street cable car to take in the country air in the newly developed Golden Gate Park. When the Red Victorian was built, the Conservatory and the first children's public playground were already in the Park.


In 1967, the Summer of Love swept through the Haight-Ashbury District. The Red Victorian was in the center of it all - in the forefront of the Peace Movement, the Ecology Movement, and the Social Justice Movement. Today it stands as a hospitality center for people who work and believe in taking care of the Planet and each other.


Sami Sunchild came in 1977 and dedicated herself to preserving the historic landmark Red Victorian as a Living Museum, where people of the neighborhood and from all over the world find hospitality and friendship.


The 18 upstairs guest rooms of the Red Victorian Bed and Breakfast commemorate the Summer of Love and Golden Gate Park. The Red Victorian is world famous and popular with educators, media people, artists, ecology-oriented and peace-oriented thinkers and world travelers.
