San Francisco Heritage presents a Halloween themed fundraising event for 2014.
Scares abound in the dimly lit halls of Mayhem Mansion where the inhabitants are more than a little off their rockers! You’ll have frightfully good fun as you tour the magnificent but aging manor led by a ghoulish host, with scary surprises at every turn.

The Spookeasy will feature a cash bar serving beer, wine and a specialty cocktail. Nonalcoholic beverages will also be available. “Not So Scary” Family friendly flashlight tour for parents with young children on November 1st.
Advance price tickets are available below. Full price tickets will be available each night at the door. Credit cards accepted. Costumes encouraged. Not recommended for children under 8. Alcoholic beverages available to guests 21 and over only.
