The affluent and upscale Pacific Heights features elegant Victorian homes located on a steep hill, with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay, Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the Presidio as a backdrop. This expensive neighborhood, often used in films, contains homes built during the mid-to-late 1800s. The C.A. Belden House is one of the oldest in the neighborhood and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
