The Painted Ladies of Alamo Square By Bella, Jake, and Georgia


Cold wind skidded across our faces as we saw the brightly colored houses. We heard dogs barking and cars going by. Across the street we saw 7 beautiful houses. We saw tons of tour buses going past us. We sat on a park bench and took it all in (it was a lot to take in). It was breezy and cold but the colorful houses made it feel warm.

Painted Ladies are special houses because of their beautiful architecture and bright colors. The Painted Ladies survived the 1906 earthquake. They are located in Alamo Square, which is a great tourist attraction. They appear on many San Francisco postcards. They are historic landmarks because they were the first Victorian houses in San Francisco built after the Gold Rush.
