Carson Mansion

Posted in Historical Sites, Musem/Art/Other at 12:57 am by Kendal

Eureka, California

When I think of Victorian Architecture, I think of elaborate bow windows, towers, gingerbread trim, wrap around porches, odd shapes and unusual roof line; the Carson Mansion is one house that leaves me nothing else to describe as my thoughts was full filled.

This is said to be one of the most photographed houses in California, if not the USA or the world, as with all this trim and well maintained who would not want to keep it as a memory.

To find out more please follow this link below.

(This house is owned as I understand by a private club that sometimes opens it as tours, the best way to see this home is probably to contact the heritage society by following the web address below)
