The Adventure Continues… Fort Humboldt


Humboldt Bay is one of the most beautiful parts of Northern California with its huge coastal redwoods and rocky shore. In this episode of California’s Golden Parks, Huell visits Fort Humbold State Historic Park, established in 1963, and learns some of the area’s darker side in the small museum dedicated to sharing the stories of conflict between the incoming settlers and Native Americans — with a little bit of logging history thrown in as a surprise at the end.


Huell travels to Eureka and the Civil War military post, Fort Humboldt. Ulysses S. Grant served there briefly in 1854. The details of his tenure, along with other important historical facts can be experienced at this state historic park set on a grassy bluff overlooking Humboldt Bay.
