The Hughes Ranch
Visit the restored 1898 Victorian farmhouse built for pioneers Patrick and Jane Hughes. After operating a successful dairy ranch for more than thirty years, the couple was able to pay pioneer builder Pehr Johan Lindberg to design and build the comfortable, two-story home. You can learn about ranch life more than 100 years ago and about the couple’s seven children, one of whom was a longtime keeper at Cape Blanco Light Station. Free tours are provided April through October each year. You can also visit the nearby Pioneer cemetery or enjoy miles of hiking trails at Cape Blanco State Park.
