By the 1870s, San Francisco was a booming city. Many of the city's elite, like whiskey baron Henry Brune, were in the market for bigger and more prestigious homes.
In 1886 the Brune family built an Italianate Victorian in Alamo Square that not only suited the city’s long and narrow lots but also let Brune flaunt his wealth.
The massive Glessner House turned its back on all things Victorian and ushered in a new era of ground-breaking design.
