  • Sentinel Museum (Eureka Sentinel Building) (Bret Morgan)

From the time of its construction until 1960, this two-story building was home to the Eureka Sentinel. Since 1982, the sturdy block has been the town's museum, retaining much of the old printing equipment used by the newspaper. The arch stones and capitals of the piers were quarried from local volcanic tuff and contrast with the buff-colored brick walls. An elaborate cornice crowns the facade.
