This house shows how early, wealthy Irish-American's lived in this part of Oregan. Each room is well preserved and well furnished throughout. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and did a great tour. Well worth a visit.

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.
