Historic Old Town Eureka California
isted on the United States National Register of Historic Places, Historic Old Town Eureka is home to more than 100 Victorian buildings, and it is one of the most meticulously preserved and restored commercial districts in the West. Located along the historic waterfront industrial area on California’s far northwest coast, Historic Old Town Eureka is packed with things to see and do, from art galleries and antique stores to museums, restaurants, coffee shops, and cafés, as well as unique boutiques, bookstores, and one-of-a-kind shops.
Founded in 1850, Eureka’s rich history of logging and fishing gave rise to the Old Town, which arose as the town developed and still retains much of the flavor of its Victorian architecture today. Perched on the edge of Humboldt Bay in the heart of the ancient Redwood belt, Eureka’s classic Old Town is a must for history buffs, architecture-lovers, or simply those who love to shop for something a little different.
Take a break from your walking or carriage tour in one of the many cafes, or dine in some of Eureka’s finest restaurants. Follow up with a stroll on the boardwalk to take in the view of Humboldt Bay, or hop on board the Madaket for a water tour of the bay. Visit the Clarke Historical Musuem for more history of Humboldt County and a world reknown Native American wing.
Many special events including the Arts Alive art walk the first Saturday of each month, take place in Historic Old Town Eureka. As you walk the streets of this district, admiring the victorian architecture, you will find that many of the walls of the commercial buildings in the area are adorned with murals.
