Worth the stop on your way to Cape Blanco lighthouse. It is free, but donations accepted. The volunteer guide did a great job. You step back in time and get to know the Hughes family whose son, James, was the first lighthouse keeper.

We stopped at the Hughes House and Ranch after touring the Port Orford Lifeboat Station. Actors provided an reenactment of a conversation between two family members to bring you back in time. This is a free tour.

This preserved home should be pared with the Cape Blanco lighthouse, because the original owner and his large family serviced the lighthouse as a keeper for 37 years. The docents are well prepared and engaging.

Great side trip out of the wind! Staffed with knowledgeable volunteers, beautiful house, lots of history, free tours. The staff provided our children with sheets to complete a scavenger hunt, they had a blast and were each given a postcard as a reward.

This home was built in 1898, and restored fairly recently. It is an interesting look back at our history.
