We share The Carson Mansion, a large Victorian house located in Old Town, Eureka, California, which is regarded as one of the premier examples of Queen Anne style architecture in the United States and is considered the most grand Victorian home in America. One of the most written about and photographed Victorian houses, it’s a national landmark. Originally the home of William Carson, one of Northern California’s first major lumber barons, he wanted to create a truly memorable home located to the south of his lumber mill. Designed by the Newsom Brothers of San Francisco in 1884-1885, it is a four-story, 18-room structure with a bell tower and a basement. Fully restored to its former glory through preservation, the mansion has been privately owned and occupied by the Ingomar Club since 1950, providing fine dining and social experiences for its members. Therefore, the house and grounds are not open to the public. The mansion’s significance extends internationally, including a direct tribute by Walt Disney.
