Tomorrow we are moving on, with our eventual destination being San Francisco. We have enjoyed Eureka immensely. The town lies in the heart of the Redwood Empire, famous for its coastal redwoods. The history of the town goes back 140 years when miners, loggers and fisherman made their fortunes in the wilderness. One lumber baron built a home which is probably the most photographed in the country. In just the short time I was standing in front of it several cars stopped to take pictures. Carson built this Victorian Mansion at a slow period when he needed to keep the millworkers busy. He is said to have employed more than over a100 craftsmen to do the intricate, decorative flourishes. Eureka has maintained many of its Victorian mansions which hearken back to the early days of the town. Currently some local club has possession of the building.
