    The Blue Ox Mill

    Eric Hollenbeck next to the printing press.

    The Blue Ox Mill is a treasure to visit.
    Eric Hollenbeck has developed a school, museum and park at his place in Eureka.
    Eric does custom millwork on antique woodworking machinery which is used to restore Victorian homes on the East Coast and the West Coast.
    My husband enjoys woodworking so I thought a stop at a place like this might be an interesting visit for him while we were traveling.
    We enjoyed our visit so much we were sorry when we had to leave.

    The Carson Mansion

    Me hiding the mansion

    One of the most famous victorian house in California, the Carson Mansion is a must see.

    Build by the lumber magnate William Carson to provide entertainment to his workers during the low season, it sure met their expectations !

    More than hundred workers from his mills helped building this magnificient piece of art. The house took two years to built and includes many exotic wood imported from Asia and South America.

    The house was owned by the descendants of the family until the 50s when it was sold to the Ingomar Club.

    The Club was a "private men's club" but seems to have started to accept women in 1996.

    Nice 100 yrs old buildings

    Between E and M Street, Eureka's Old Town is filled with history, interesting stores, cafes, bars and restaurants.

    In less than 2 hours, you can walk the whole old downtown and discover its nice stores, old renovated mansions and quiet parks. A walk in the fisherman's port is a must also.

    Surrounded by trees!

    The zoo has been opened since 1907. Yes, the buildings & homes for the animals have been modified. There is a gorgeous, large garden with a wishing well. Many animals, a petting zoo, gift shop and nice park next door. If you would like to have a picnic in the Redwoods, there are many sites to choose from. Further down the road in the trees is a large duck pond with ducks that love to see people.
    Admission is free!

    This has to be one of the most beautiful homes still standing in Eureka! It is now actually a private club and admittance is by invitation only for those other than members. I know there is a somewhat 'fancy' Dress Ball held here every year..I've never been invited, but , who knows..maybe someday...now,hmmm.... what will I wear????
