This log house was built in St. Maries in 1902 and started out as a men’s club.

From 1906 until the early 1920s it served as the office and treatment center for Dr. G.S. Thompson.

In 1926 Raleigh Hughes purchased the house and began years of restoration and improvements, including the addition of porches.

In 1989, the St. Maries Centennial Committee purchased the home from the Hughes family and in 1990 opened it as the Hughes House Historical Museum.
