Does anyone from California recognize this building?
If you said, "the Governor's Mansion", you are correct. We stayed in a hotel about a block or so from the Governor's Mansion and were able to walk around the area before resuming our trip.
We were impressed by many of the houses in the immediate area around the mansion.
The houses and building in the Arcata/Eureka area were equally impressive.
This is the "Pink Lady" Carson house in Eureka. It was built 1889 by William Carson, a pioneer lumber baron of Northern California, who had it built as a wedding gift for his son Milton Carson.
The pink and white color is to contrast it with the Carson Mansion across the street.
The Carson Mansion.
The mansion now belongs to a private club know as the Ingomar Club. Just to the left of the house is the basin used to dock all the yachts.
