Eureka

Right on the coast, Eureka is the largest town in Humboldt County California. This is the heart of redwood country. It is typical of so many towns along the US West Coast. There’s ‘Old Town’, a zoo, museum, stunning sea vistas and clear-sky sunsets plus other curiosities to amuse us tourists. But, for me, its standout feature was the architecture of many of its wooden houses; particularly the mansions. And of those mansions there’s one that outdoes them all by a country mile.

Unfortunately, the amazing Carson Mansion is a private club. I’d love to have seen the inside.Carson Mansion copy
