William Hill Combellack's House (Former)

The Combellack-Blair House is a historic house in the Gold Rush town of Placerville, in El Dorado County, California.

The Combellack-Blair House, designed in the Queen Anne Style of the Late Victorian architecture era, was built by William Hill Combellack in 1895. One of the residence's early owners operated Combellack's, a store on Main Street in Placerville. The Arthur Blair family purchased it in 1924. It served as a bed and breakfast for several years, but is now a private residence.

The home was featured in a Thomas Kinkade painting, Victorian Christmas. Kinkade, who grew up in Placerville, stated it was one of the type of house that "beg to be painted"; he placed it in an idealized turn of the 20th century Christmas scene.
