Old Town Eureka (formally the Eureka Old Town Historic District) in Eureka, California, is listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places. This Historic district is a 350-acre (1.4 km2) area containing 154 buildings mostly from the Victorian era. The core of the district runs the length of First, Second, and Third Streets, between "C" and "M" Streets and includes many types of architecture from the 1850s to the present. Though not officially within the district, the Carson Mansion, the undisputed Victorian jewel of the city and region, commands the highest elevation at the eastern edge of the district.

  • We drove by in early evening. Ightong gave glow to all the many lovely wooden designs. Not sure if this house open for tours. But lovely to look at.  more »
  • Maybe it's the COVID impact, maybe it's the overall depressing nature of central Eureka, but we found almost nothing there to interest us. A lot of closed shops and restaurants.  more »
