This home was built in 1898, and restored fairly recently. It is an interesting look back at our history.

The house itself is interesting, and should definitely be included in a visit to Cape Blanco lighthouse. The insight and information provided by the knowledgable local volunteers was especially appreciated.

A visit to the Hughes House gave us some insight into life in the area in the late 1800s. A tour guide gave us helpful information into the family that built the house and lived there. Admission was free with donations accepted.

Tours are available or you can wander through on your own. You will enjoy the antique furniture and get a feeling for ranching in the late 1800's.

The house is very interesting and there's some great things to see and learn there. Let me say though....the old lady there running the tour was rude, defensive, cold, and combative!!!! At a free tour in a state park ran by volunteers you might imagine some good spirited folk who love the history, which was the case with the dark... More

We expected something more rustic than this mansion - Patrick Hughes must have been a great businessman. The house has been well restored and filled with period furnishing. There is some original equipment such as a 4,000 lb. stove! The docents are very knowledgable about the history of the family and the area, populated by many Irish at the time.... More

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!
