The Historic Victorian Village of Ferndale, California

An oasis of perfectly preserved Victorian buildings & real-life small town charm

The tiny dairy town of Ferndale on the Redwood Coast is home to some of the most ornate, well-preserved Victorian architecture in the United States; in fact, our entire town resides on the Register of Historic Places. Step back in time with the magnificent facades of Main Street's Painted Ladies and neighborhoods lined with row after row of Queen Anne, Eastlake-Stick, Italianate, Neo-Classic, Bungalow and Mission style homes with lovingly-tended gardens, and it's easy to see why Forbes calls Ferndale one of America's prettiest places.
