“City Hall "knows nutink"!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We knew who we were looking for, and where their family plot was located. Fortunately. When we were essentially done photographing our family's obelisk and headstones, I called the Ferndale City Hall number on the nearby sign. They readily admitted the know nothing about the cemetery.

At least they were able to give the name of number of a contact person with the Ferndale Cemetery Association. To save you grief, here is it (current as of Sep 2013): Eunice Sanborn, (707) 786-4394. I called Eunice after we got back home, and she couldn't have been nicer of more helpful!

So if you need help with the Historic Ferndale Cemetery, bypass City Hall and go direct to Eunice!

“very cool place”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

I loved the way it looked and the old tombstones were so cool. Not your normal cemetery. We loved the calm when we walked around.

“bit of a surprise”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

This isn't your average cemetary and we were surprised when we came around the corner and saw it. First, it is huge in size as covers an entire hill. Second, the tombs and mausoleums are large in size and varied, yet all in dark gray. It's rather spooky and very cool.

“Truly unique historic cemetery”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

This place was an odd and pleasant surprise; its huge and on quite an unwieldy slope. Ferndale in general was a cute historic town and the cemetery had a nice of the town, as well as the coast, if the weather allows.
