This is an absolute 'must see' attraction while in Eureka. It's claimed to be the 'most beautiful' historic Victorian....It is a private social club, so visits are not readily available.

This is the famous mansion that one sees in all the photos of Eureka. It's beautiful, a short walk from the downtown business district.

As posted by others, you cannot presently tour this site as it is a private club. Still, as a quick driveby I would recommend it for the sheer beauty of its architecture. There really are some gorgeous old buildings in Eureka, and the Carson Mansion...More

Pictures don’t do this place justice! You need to stop and look for yourself. It’s not open to the the public but still a great stop in Eureka.

The Carson Mansion holds this title for a reason--but you have to see it in person to fully appreciate it's craftsmanship and beauty. Built over a period of two years for lumber magnate William Carson--reputedly to give his millworkers paid work during a slump in...More

Looks amazing, green color mansion and in front of it the pink house. You wonder how such a building style can be available in a small town such as Eureka ! Unfortunately it's now a private club. So you can't see it from inside.

The Carson Mansion is a highlight of Eureka CA and Humboldt County in particular. At this time of year (December), it is brilliantly-lit with many many strings of Christmas lights and is amazingly beautiful. Add to that the supermoon and it was a definite must-see...More

I've seen the Carson Mansion from the outside many times, and would love to have a tour of the interior. How can that be arranged? I am willing to pay for a tour.
