Free museum in Fort Bragg that is located right in the heart of downtown. Just beside the Main St. and next to the Skunk Train station, there is a huge section of a tree that's on display. The sheer size is amazing and tells the lumber history of the town. If you happen to walk around downtown or want to stroll a little after the Skunk Train ride, this is a great place to come and visit.

Quaint, homespun museum featuring artifacts from the area's lumber history. The house architecture is interesting.

Free admission very cool to walk thru. Please leave a donation before you leave so the historical society can keep this piece of history open

The many displays highlighting the history of Fort Bragg and the beautiful house (gorgeous stained-glass windows) give a sense of place to this beautiful seaside town. History books available for purchase. Support the historical society by becoming a member and receive the quarterly newsletter with great stories/photos.

Be aware that their hours are very limited! (Open 11 am - 2 pm) Having missed it on the first try, we returned - and were glad we did. There are informative exhibits throughout the house on the logging industry, railroad history, and the story of the Pomo Indians who were displaced. Interestingly, one of the exhibits claims the fort was established to protect the Pomo from settlers - a bit hard to believe. The Pomo exhibit room, however, gives a more fair retelling of their history. Recommended for adults; small kids may be bored.

Really enjoyed our visit. The museum itself is great but the docent at the front desk was the highlight of our visit. She told us some fascinating history and answered all our questions.

The museum has a great deal of information and exhibits on local history. The docents are quite knowledgeable, the two we spoke with grew up in Fort Bragg. There is no charge but a donation box. If you are into the history of the area, you will particularly like The Guest House.

We spent around an hour walking through and enjoying the history presented to us. Not being familiar with Fort Bragg's history, we appreciated the displays and lessons learned.

This is a lovely historic museum both inside and out. Great architecture, but the grounds were most interesting for us to visit. It’s walking distance from the Skunk Train and local shops. Be sure to visit the cross section of the redwood tree on the front lawn and garden.

This is a small (but free and volunteer-run) museum right in the downtown area. It's rich with history and there's plenty to look at.
