About Ferndale

The Victorian village of Ferndale is a city in Humboldt County, California, United States. The population was 1,382 at the 2000 census. It is very near the Lost Coast and towering Coast Redwoods.

Culture and events

Ferndale is known for well-preserved Victorian buildings, which are also known as "Butterfat Palaces" due to their construction during an epoch wherein considerable wealth was generated in the dairy industry, especially during the 1880s. The entire town is an historical landmark (see California Historical Landmark No. 883). 

Ferndale is also the endpoint of the annual Kinetic sculpture race as well as being the town where the first race began when  Hobart Brown was challenged to race his odd-looking five-wheeled bike down Main Street on Mother's Day, 1969 by local sculptor Jack Mays.

Ferndale is a popular film location and is featured in movies like The Majestic with Jim Carrey, Outbreak starring Dustin Hoffman, Salem’s Lot starring David Soul and James Mason and Joe Dirt with David Spade.

The Humboldt County Fair is held every August at the county fairgrounds on the edge of Ferndale, and feature the only horse-racing events in the county along with the standard fare of agricultural, pastoral and artistic contests, carnival games and commercial or non-profit booths.


S.L. Shaw built a hotel on his property in what later became Ferndale in 1860. The first post office at Ferndale opened in 1860. Ferndale incorporated in 1893.

Ferndale was incorporated in 1893 and is governed by a four-member City Council and a Mayor, all of whom serve four-year terms chosen in the general election of even-numbered years. The current Mayor is Jeff Farley, elected in November 2006. Councilmembers include Niels Lorenzen, Michael Moreland, Ken Mierzwa and Stuart Titus.

In 2004 the City Council placed Measure O on the municipal ballot to eliminate the elective office of Mayor, which would have then reverted to an appointive office, to be filled by a person chosen by the City Council from amongst its own members. The measure was resoundingly defeated, with 78.8% voting against. Interestingly, when the Mayor's seat was open for election in 2006, all of the mayoral candidates were write-ins. Jeff Farley won the election, and now holds office as Mayor for the second time in Ferndale history.

The newly hired Chief of Police, Karl Poppelreiter, worked for several decades as a California State Park Ranger, headed the California State Park Department's Office of Internal Affairs and worked on staff for the Chief Deputy Director as his last assignment before moving to Ferndale.

State and Federal

In the state legislature Ferndale is located in the 2nd Senate District, represented by Democrat Pat Wiggins, and in the 1st Assembly District, represented by Democrat Patty Berg. Federally, Ferndale is located in California's 1st congressional district.

Points of Interest

The Victorian Inn (located on the corner of Ocean and Main), was built in 1891 as the Russ-Williams Bank, with a millinary store, a haberdashery and the Ferndale Enterprise newspaper on the ground floor, and business and professional offices on the upper floor. Designed by noted architect J. Frost, who designed several other noted buildings in the area, it is an excellent example of a commercial Victorian structure. Today, this outstanding example of Eastlake-Stick architecture is operated as an upscale bed & breakfast inn, with a restaurant and bar where the millinery store and haberdashery used to be, and a fine jewelry store in the bank's space.


Ferndale is home to the longest living newspaper under a single name in Humboldt County, the Ferndale Enterprise. Commercial radio station KHUM also calls Ferndale home, and operates in a joint studio with KSLG-FM and KWPT under the ownership of Lost Coast Communications. Ferndale is also home to the North Coast's oldest and largest theatre company, The Ferndale Repertory Theatr which has been in operation since 1972.
