Villa Montalvo

"Built in 1912, Villa Montalvo was the country home of James D. Phelan, the three-term San Francisco mayor and first popularly-elected senator from California. Named in honor of the 16th-century Spanish writer who coined the name “California,” this beloved estate was frequented by poets, writers, artists and performers during Phelan’s lifetime."
