Myth has it that shortly after the house was built by Theodore F. Payne in 1881, his family was discovered dead in the home.  Frightening stories claim they were very grotesquely murdered by Mr. Payne, who had mysteriously gone mad.  He then took his own life by a hanging noose.  The home remained vacant for many years before another family purchased it.  However, shortly after they moved in, the family strangely disappeared and was never found.  The city of San Francisco then ceased the property by eminent domain, locked it's doors, prohibiting entrance to anyone; however, preserving the property as a historical landmark.

Over the next century, there have been disturbing stories by neighbors of mysterious screams and glowing apparitions looking out its windows at night.  So after a heavy court battle with the city of San Francisco, we are very fortunate to have secured a limited use permit to enter this haunted house for our "Haunted Dinner" for you and your friends to enjoy.

Do you have the guts to dine with Ghosts? 

By the way, the whole story above was totally made up...
Just having fun to get you in the spooky Halloween spirit! 



The Payne Mansion is considered one of the most beautiful locations of domestic and Victorian-era architecture in the United States.  It just recently underwent a magnificent $3,000,000 renovation, transforming it into a high-end boutique hotel with modern, high-end amenities, while retaining its original charm, beauty and exquisite craftsmanship that makes this 134 year old building one of San Francisco’s most prized gems.
