Jackson House

-A A +A
1877. 11 S. Main St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

Though gutted in the fire of 1880, this building was repaired and continued to serve as a hotel through the early twentieth century. After many years of vacancy, it has been restored and is now operated as a hotel by new owners. The two-story brick structure consists of two adjacent buildings unified by a single bracketed cornice and long porch that curves around the northwest corner of the hotel. With its Italianate details, porch, and red brick walls, the hotel harmonizes with the nearby courthouse and opera house, making this block in Eureka one of the most attractive and best preserved in the state.
