Nearby to Cape Blanco Lighthouse so very convenient as a combination visit. Tour guides provide a lot of interesting information about the house and family. Just down the road, you can also park and walk out on the sand dunes to the ocean.

Opens at 10am. Docents did a good job explaining farm and dairy life as it was around 1900. The house is three miles off 101, the lighthouse 5 miles. Tour is about a half hour and was worth our time. Be sure and leave a donation. The lighthouse itself was fog enshrouded and impossible to see even from up close.

This lovely old farmhouse has been sympathetically restored and furnished with period items, though most are not original to the house. The volunteers who look after the property were very informative, pointing out things that might otherwise have been missed. We are glad that we took the time to have a look round and, though there is no charge for... More

Stopped here and at the Cape Blanco Lighthouse for no reason in particular and were treated to guided tour of this house built in 1898 by early settlers. Great fun for history buffs. Very windy outside.

Historic home of early settlers. Enjoyed seeing what their life was like. Friendly staff. Followed trail out through fields to the beach and met a lot of sheep on the way.

Restored to pristine condition is this Victorian home and museum. Very interesting from a historical perspective, and equally as beautiful for the setting on a river plain with ocean views.

Likely one of our favorites on the coast. This is a free attraction, and would have been worth it at $10 each. The volunteers provide a great tour and history of the family that settled the land, built the house and milked over 100 dairy cows by hand during the 1800's.

The Hughes Historic House is a very short distance from the Cape Blanco Lighthouse and worth a stop. You get a real sense of the history of the area as this family was a successful dairy farming enterprise. They had 100 cows which had to be milked by hand by the many children and farmhands. The cream was also churned... More

We like to learn a bit about the area we are visiting and this was a sweet little stop. If you go to the light house you might want to know about the family that helped make it all happen.
