The ‘Redwoods curtain’ cuts off Humboldt County from the rest of NW California. It’s a place of hillbillies, Frisco-leavers and increasingly ‘growers’ (marijuana farmers).
The most appealing town by far is Ferndale. Known as ‘Cream City’, it’s where the dairy farmers lived in their Redwood-built houses. The entire town is registered as a California Historical Landmark.
Interestingly Americans call this Victorian-style. Not sure why, didn’t independence come earlier?
