The grounds are maintained beautifully, and it is a part of history of Eureka. It is worth seeing from the outside. Its a one of a kind victorian.

We parked near the mansion so we could walk around downtown Eureka. The house was beautiful in the early morning light. There is a reason why it's the most photographed.

Since we couldn't go inside. I took some photos while the dogs peed on their ornate iron fence. We all agreed it was a worthwhile detour.

Tip - Lots of parking in that part of the downtown.

While we didn't find a whole lot in Eureka that we would rave about, and much of it is tired and in dire need of some maintenance, this jaw-dropping monument of Victorian architecture was worth the detour. It is now a private club and the public can't enter its grounds, but the house is a true marvel to see. Carson also built the Pink Lady, another gem just across the road from the Mansion. There are a few other lovely Victorian mansions in the same street. Grab some pics if you can - these mansions are said to be the most photographed Victorians in the country ...

What can I say? There is a reason that this is the most photographed Victorian home in the United States. When in Eureka, don't miss this spectacular work of art. While you cannot enter the grounds since it is surrounded by a fence and locked gate, the parking on the street in front of the home is free.

It was a stunning sight , but I was not able to visit the interior, since it is a private club. I would have loved to have been able to tour the interior.
