Exact Description:
Constructed in 1879 at a cost of $10,000, the Sentinel Building was designed by architect, C.M. Bennett. The Eureka Sentinel was published in this building from 1879 to 1960. Three generations of the Skillman family, Archibald, Edward and Willis, edited the newspaper. The last editor, Edward J. Moyle had been with the Sentinel for over fifty years before he took over the editorial chair in 1944.
