Interesting displays in each room, particularly (to my mind) the room with the history of Pomo life in the Ft. Bragg area
Take a half hour minimum and tour this lovely old home turned museum. Gorgeous wood work and stained glass in this mansion, but no furnishings from the original house, lots of old photos and written history of Ft. Bragg and the mining industry, plus the 1750 year old slice of tree outside is unbelieveable. Why would anyone cut that down??... 更多
From the 1750 year old slice of redwood tree on display out front to the one-of-a-kind artifacts of the logging history of Fort Bragg displayed within to the well-documented history of the Guest House this is an amazing historical building in Fort Bragg.
The Guest House Museum is set in a large historical mansion on Main Street in Fort Bragg (Highway 1). The mansion is set on a large parcel, with an attractive lawn and garden. Inside, the many rooms feature photos and artifacts from the town's history as a logging town. I expected to see rooms furnished with period furniture, but there... 更多
Docent very knowledgable and friendly. History of the Mendocino coast displayed in pictures and writings clearly documenting the past events. Located next to the Skunk Train Depot and parking available on the street or in the Depots parking lot. The museum is housed in one of the oldest buildings in FB and is a beautiful example of that era's buildings.
Learned a lot about Ft. Bragg and the logging in and around the area. The house had some nice stained glass windows and the displays were very informative. Lots of historic photos too. The docent gave us a nice, concise history of the house before we explored.
This is a cool old house with rooms dedicated to different historical activities that made Fort Bragg the cool place it is. The displays were a bit tired and dusty. But you could get the idea of what was what.
WE had a wonderful few hours looking at all the history about logging and the area here in March. It was a beautiful old home with lots of original glass and interior. The inside displays were great!
Stopped by partly to get out of the rain, but is a worthwhile visit in any event. Met a very friendly and pleasant docent who related some of the history to us. Rooms full of pictures and article relating to the history of Fort Bragg. If you are a history buff, this is a must visit.
Beautiful house built in 1800's. Tons of history regarding lumber and logging. They have this neat picture that shows loggers trying to cut a tree the old way, saws and axes and had to use ladders on a redwood tree that's double wide than a logging truck! There are volunteers present who are knowledgeable on the history of the house... 更多
