It wasn’t all that long ago when I featured Huell Howser’s visit to the Anderson Marsh State Historic Park as my Wednesday post; at that time I mentioned it was on my list of places I definitely wanted to see for myself. Well, I finally got my chance last week! I actually visited the park on two separate days because there’s so much to see.
The park was mostly deserted when I visited on Wednesday afternoon (it may very well be different on the weekends, when the old farmhouse is open to the public), but this was fine with me. The next morning, I met a few other people hiking the trails toward the marsh, and everyone was very friendly and clearly happy to be out enjoying this beautiful natural area.
There are two good-sized barns, connected by a fenced corral. These structures were built during the 1880s.
After checking out the exterior of the house, I found the trail that leads towards Cache Creek — but I’ll save that for a later post.
