I enjoyed walking around this historic home after visiting Cape Blanco Lighthouse within the state park. This building takes you back in time when you think about when explorers and pioneers first came to the Oregon Coast. The lace curtains and gingerbread trim gave me the feel of my grandmother's home. I would have taken a tour if it was... More

We took the quick tour and it was fun to learn about the family's life there. Very nicely restored with helpful volunteers.

To be fair-we arrived on a day that it was closed. Therefore we could not tour the home. It appeared a little run down from the outside. In my opinion, I have seen better places in Dayton and Waittsburg, WA. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it but would stop on the way to the lighthouse.

We have toured the historic Hughes House many times and always enjoy it. The house was built in 1898 by the Patrick Hughes family. It had indoor plumbing which was unheard of for houses in the country at that time. The house is restored to it's original beauty and is elegantly maintained. The guides were very kind and knowledgeable. The... More

Worth the stop on the way to the Cape Blanco Lighthouse. The family's hardships and history are interesting. House has old family furnishings and artifacts. Well preserved.

A family from Boston moves to Oregon starts a business and builds a beautiful home near the ocean is a true success story. what is equally remarkable is that the home remains in excellent condition today due to volunteers who really enjoy taking care of it and giving tours. I find that the tour docents really become animated when you... More

Either before or after you visit the Cape Blanco Lighthouse, you might want to see the Hughes Historic House. When I went through the house with my wife, I was reminded of certain older homes I had seen in my childhood and up to my teen years. Many of the building and woodworking styles were similar. While this was built... More

Manned and maintained by volunteers, the house is impeccably kept both inside and out. It has been equipped as best as possible with period furnishings and actual items once owned by the Hughes family. A guided tour gives you a history and explaination of the home's interior and history and then you can roam at your leisure through the home... More
