Victorian Home at 1550 Page Street

This Victorian mansion, built in 1900, is directly across the street from the Raven Baxter House from the “That’s So Raven” television show. In the 1960’s it was a hippie crash pad, but has since been renovated and restored to its original glory, replete with ornate and colorful architectural embellishments.

Emperor Norton was a kooky businessman who lost all his money on a risky investment, and after some years of living in squalor, declared himself “Emperor of The United States”. He began printing his own currency and shooting off letters to Congress and other seats of government, issuing orders/demands. Read more about him here: Emperor Norton | Wikipedia
