The Alfred E. Clarke Mansion, also known as Caselli Mansion, Nobby Clarke's Castle and Nobby Clarke's Folly, is a mansion in San Francisco, California, located at 250 Douglass Street in the Castro neighborhood.[3] The Clarke Mansion survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and subsequent fires which had destroyed many of the Victorian mansions from the same era.[4] On December 7, 1975, it was designated a San Francisco City landmark. The mansion was used briefly as a hospital. Today, it is used as a rental property, with 15 apartments.
