Grateful Dead House

Among San Francisco’s most famous houses is the Grateful Dead house, located in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

Jerry Garcia and his band lived here during 1967, the Summer of Love. On Oct. 2, 1967, eleven residents of the house were arrested by the San Francisco police for drug use (although Garcia wasn’t one of them, as he was hiding out across the street at the Hell’s Angels house).

After the bust, the band held a press conference here, arguing for decriminalization. If all the people who smoked weed were arrested, they claimed, San Francisco would be empty.

Built in 1900, it is now a multi-family home with 2,680 square feet, four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
