The Tannehill brothers, local miners, built this cabin for their home in 1864. Thought to be the first house built in Eureka, the structure later served as one of the town’s first mercantile establishments. It is constructed from the pinion pines that once grew at higher elevations around the town. The ceiling is built from smaller pinion and juniper logs. It has been modified slightly since its original construction.
