Hailed as one of the most notable examples of Victorian architecture in the United States, the Carson Mansion in Eureka, CA had always fascinated Jane.

She was so inspired by it, that she built her own model, which Paul would sit and admire as a young boy.                                                             

Jane's HO model of the Carson Mansion stands just over 8 inches tall. Built in 1949, the year of Paul's birth, and constructed primarily using illustration board and matchsticks.
