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.

This home is huge for being built in the 1800;s and beautifully restored. Small but nice gift shop. A must see.

While visiting Cape Blanco Lighthouse and Park be sure to take a little time to visit this interesting and restored Hughes Family home. It represents and explains an era of coastal living not often seen any more. There are interesting descriptions and knowledgeable people on hand.

I love old historical houses, so since we were passing through the area I wanted to see it. It was free, so we didn't lose anything but time. The staff of volunteers was very friendly, and the house was interesting, but not what I expected. Almost nothing in it was original, although it was furnished nicely. The outside needed some...

The Hughes House is a great stop along the south coast of Oregon -- imagine having this little spot on the Sixes River as your farm! You can walk down to the beach after touring the house. Aside from lighthouses, there aren't too many historic properties to tour along the south coast, so this is a real gem.

Great tour guide, fantastic house right off the beaten track but well worth a detour. Especially liked the kitchen which must have the very first island workspace.

Tour guides were most informative about the history of the inhabitants, who came from Ireland and operated a dairy when butter was more expensive than beef, and shipped as far as San Francisco.

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
