By the mid 1880s, Eureka, CA was becoming the dominant city on Humbolt Bay. Many elaborate homes were constructed during this period, none more famous than the Carson Mansion. Built by William Carson, one of the area's most prosperous lumbermen, and designed by two of San Francisco's most uninhibited architects, the Carson Mansion stands as a monument to American Victorian Architecture. There are many theories as to why Carson built such an extravagant home. One claim is that he wanted to keep his employees working during a depression in the forest industry. Another suggestion is that the lavishness of the mansion was intended to advertise the possibilities of wood as a construction material. The simplest suggestion is that he just wanted to create something spectacular. Whichever theory, the house was two years in the building and the labor alone is said to have cost upwards of $75,000. Today it is owned by the Ingomar Club, a private men's organization.
