They Lived In Great Houses is a nostalgic look back at two magnificent mansions built in an exclusive part of the San Francisco peninsula during the early 1900s. Each of the two episodes — Victoria Manor and Uplands — profiles the grandeur of these homes and the lifestyles of those who lived in them. They Lived In Great Houses reveals previously untold stories of the early American
aristocracy through a mix of archival photos, interviews, dramatic reenactments
and film footage of the historic houses.
