The Hotel Vance was built in 1872 by Eureka pioneer & lumberman,
John Vance. It was the area's grandest hotel & the first building in
Eureka with electricity. It was originally designed & built in the
"Modern Italianate style", which included a mansard roof on the third
story and a cupola for viewing ships arriving into Humboldt Bay.

The hotel was remodeled in 1910 by adding two-stories in a restrained
Edwardian style. The quoining (wood cornerstones) & rustification
(horizontal boards vertically incised to appear as stone blocks) are
outstanding architectural elements. The two story building adjacent
to the main hotel was remodeled into an annex for the hotel & a
parking garage. During the 1950's the hotel & the famous "Vance
log cabin" were owned & operated by the Lloyd Bridges family.

The hotel was purchased in 1998 by Rob & Cherie Arkley & Kurt
& Kim Kramer. It has been restored into a beautiful Victorian
retail/office complex.
