Nice history lesson, for a house built in 1886, it had a lot of interesting features that was ahead of the times. They had a short skit telling about the family that settled and lived there. Was well worth the time!

Have visited the Hughes several times and am always amazed by it. What courage to move here in the 1870's and build a farm from scratch. You can get a real sense of the Hughes's life by touring the home and walking around the homestead. Volunteer docents are informative and helpful.

We happened upon the house as we were on our way to the lighthouse. As you go down the road to the house you come upon a beautiful view of the Pacific.

Interesting tour and well informed volunteers. Enjoyed listening to the history of the home. Plenty of time to wander the rooms on your own. Small gift shop with local items. Free tour with donations accepted. Worth your time.

A beautifully maintained historical residence on the road to the lighthouse. Park hosts guide you through and answer your questions about isolated living over a century ago. A great place to get shelter from the wind or rain.

Visited this house and was a little disappointed because we had to listen to the docent instead of a self guided tour. Could've taken less time if we could've done that.

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.

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.

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.
