The Ferndale Museum is a great place to learn about the the history of this unique Victorian village. The museum is not large, but it is packed with interesting exhibits. Be sure to check out the annex to see the old blacksmith forge and old farming tools.

We were in Ferndale to research our 1880s family history.

The nice man at the desk when we visited wanted to be helpful, but the real help we got was from a local historian. Ann Roberts is a walking encyclopedia on Ferndale and at least its nearby Humboldt County neighborhood.

Ann has indexed a number of years of the Ferndale Enterprise (still published!), and that provided a wealth of information for us.

If you contact the museum, they can tell you how and when you can meet with Ann.

We were so glad we stopped here - what a great museum! Well worth the cost of $1 admission. We could have spent more time, but the Redwoods were calling.

The small museum is full of the history of Ferndale. Very interesting and can be a quick stop. Only a $1 per person to get in.
