by Ferndale Museum

The enchanting "Victorian Village" of Ferndale in the Eel River Valley is designated a "Distinctive Destination" by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is a California Historical Landmark. Named by its founders, the Shaw brothers, to honor the six-foot-tall ferns that once choked the thickly forested valley floor, the town became a vital center for goods bound by water for San Francisco and a crossroads for stages to Eureka and Bear River. For many years after the Shaws first paddled their canoe across the Eel River in 1852, travelers forded it by ferry. This changed when Fernbridge was constructed in 1911, at that time the longest reinforced concrete-arch span bridge in the world.

My kids moved to Ferndale and I wanted to know it's history, this book told me things I didn't know. Great for those history buffs who travel and want to learn about the little town on the California coast.
We have quite a collection of these "Images of America" books and always enjoy the old photos and history. Never a disappointment.
Ordered wrong book. Wanted Ferndale Michigan. Not Ferndale, CA
Should have payed more attention! ????
