Eureka is the leading city in and the county seat of Humboldt County, California, United States.[3] The population was 26,128 at the 2000 census.

Located adjacent to Humboldt Bay 270 miles (430 km) north of San Francisco (via U.S. Route 101), the regional port city serves as the center for government, health care, trade, and the arts for the far North Coast of California. Situated near extensive preserves of the world's tallest trees, the Coast Redwoods, and dozens of related parks, Eureka is the site of the headquarters for both the North Coast Redwoods District of the California State Parks System and Six Rivers National Forest. The city, a major player in the historic west coast lumber trade, is the site of hundreds of significant Victorian homes, including the Carson Mansion, situated at the head of its Old Town Historic District.
