Own a slice of San Francisco’s political history with 141 Albion Street. The three bedroom, three and a half bath residential home once held important labor union meetings as the headquarters of the city’s Socialist Party. Now it’s on the market for $1.9 million to those interested.

The building has had a long list of notable tenants. Following the 1906 earthquake, 141 Albion was built as a meeting hall. Between 1908 and 1912, it was designated as the HQ for the Socialist Party, lovingly called Equality Hall. Then from 1912 to 1966, it was owned by the Workmen’s Educational Association and the International Longshoreman’s Association. The property later became known as Albion Hall, and for a short period in the 1990s, it hosted indie artists as a live music and theatre venue.

Located in Mission Dolores next to the 16th St. BART station and right off of Valencia Street, this Victorian was completely remodeled and seismically retrofitted in 2009. Each bedroom contains an ensuite bathroom, designed to prevent early morning lineups for the shower, and there’s also a powder room on the main level. The kitchen has been updated with state-of-the-art Bosch appliances, a center island and luxurious Carrera marble countertops.

Albion Hall is a multi-unit home — the neighboring address, 143 Albion Street, made headlines last year when it was listed for a whopping $6.9 million.
