About the Historic Victorian Village of Ferndale
Become Part of a Different World
Tucked away between the California Redwoods and Humboldt Bay, the Victorian Village of Ferndale is a magical town that blends the best of the past and the present, all amidst the backdrop of Northern California's magnificent Lost Coast. Visitors come here for our fantastically preserved Victorian era architecture and stunning coastal scenery.
But what they fall in love with is the feeling.
Ferndale is more than a pretty picture: It's a place where small-town Americana is alive and well, where kids stay out playing after dusk and neighbors are quick to lend a helping hand.
It's a haven for artists and creative-minded folks who left behind the fast pace of the suburbs or city to follow a dream, make a difference and lead a fuller life. It's a special town that we're proud to call home, whether our family has been here for five years or five generations. Whether you're drawn to historic architecture, want to explore our incredible coastline and forests, or are simply looking for an escape from the everyday world, we invite you to discover Humboldt County and the Redwood Coast's best kept secret - and fall in love with Ferndale.
