This old Victorian home was rumored to have had many uses over the years, from the Holy to the unsavory. For a period of time it was used for Unitarian Church Sunday services. When I sketched it in the late 1970's, it housed the administration offices of the much respected Peninsula School on the San Francisco Peninsula.The classrooms were in several buildings scattered throughout the property. Trees that had fallen or been cut down were left on the ground for the children to climb. In a public school, the trees would have been hauled away immediately. As I sketched, a teacher signaled the end of recess by walking the length of the porch ringing a black-handled, small brass bell about eight inches tall. I hadn't seen that since my rural school days in South Dakota.
