With our famous Victorian architecture, it should come as no surprise that Ferndale loves its history - and history buffs love Ferndale! The nonprofit Ferndale Museum is a treasure trove of Victorian era, redwoods, and Humboldt County history featuring Victorian room settings, a working seismograph (the oldest in the U.S.), natural history exhibits, antique farming and dairy equipment, and more. Make sure to visit the excellent gift shop and bookstore, offering local history books, postcards, reproductions of the work of local artists, Ferndale memorabilia and collectibles.
