Must see with going to Cape Blanco

Amazing history...even if you aren't able to get time to tour the house it is still worth a stop to check out the exterior.

The Hughes House is a reconstruction of a turn of the twentieth century house built for a farmer and his wife as their "dream house". The tour guides were interesting.

This house is a volunteer guided look into the past beautifully preserved and ready to show off the 1800's (rich family) this house is fascinating, my favorite part was the kitchen and the fireplace ducting.

Stopped in here on our way to the Cape Blanco lighthouse. A very nice docent told us historical information about the family who lived there. The attraction itself is free but there is a suggested donation at the end of the information.

You might have to drive off the US 101 towards Cape Blanco, but before you arrive at the Lighthouse you will see a turn to the right for the Hughes Historic House. It's worth your time to see this 3K+ sq. ft. home built in 1898, still standing today despite all the often harsh weather condiitions of high winds &... More

Didn't get a chance to tour the house but spent some time admiring it close up. Unique structure that holds much history in the area. A long drive off 101 though, on road that desperately needs repairing.

An interesting house to visit with a breath taking view and location. Free on a donation basis. The people there are very nice and answer your questions. Very unique furnishings from the original time. Little gift area. Worth the time to visit.

Found this on accident while driving along the coast. The house is amazing. The tour guides are really helpful, too. My favorite room is the kitchen.

My wife and I stopped by on our return from the lighthouse. We were the only ones there and the volunteer staff went out of their way to highlight the history and features of the house. We had very pleasant tour and enjoyed learning about the family and their descendants.

Well preserved architecture didn't get to take the tour! Watch out for the road to get there in need of serious repairs !
