About McKinleyville

McKinleyville (formerly, Minorsville) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Humboldt County, California, United States. McKinleyville is located 5.25 miles (8.4 km) north of Arcata, at an elevation of 141 feet (43 m). The population was 13,599 at the 2000 census. It is also the location of the Arcata-Eureka Airport.

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 22.8 square miles (59.1 km²), of which, 20.9 square miles (54.1 km²) of it is land and 1.9 square miles (5.0 km²) of it (8.42%) is water.

McKinleyville consists of several watershed areas. The north bank of the Mad River in the farthest watershed to the south. Next watershed to the north is Mill Creek, then Strawberry Creek, Widow White Creek, Norton Creek, Patrick Creek and finally the farthest watershed to the north is the south bank of the Little River. To the west lies the Pacific Ocean.

History

First Nation

The Wiyot and Yurok lived in this area prior to European settlement. Both native groups still have a role in the local scene.

European settlement

McKinleyville is a community made up of a combination of smaller settlements. Joe Dow settled in the general area in the 1860s and that area was known as Dow's Prairie. Slightly south was a small community called Minor (also known as Minorville). Minor was first settled in the late-1800s. Just south of Minor was Calville. Calville was settled by the employees of the California Barrel Company. After President William McKinley was assassinated in 1901 the community of Minor changed its name in his honor. All three areas are collectively considered to be what is now known as McKinleyville. Dow's Prairie continues to be known by the original place name and, although it is considered part of McKinleyville, local residents further refine location by this neighborhood name. , 

The first post office at McKinleyville opened in 1903, closed in 1921, and was re-opened in 1955.

Post timberboom

The area had several nicknames. Derogatory names such as "Oklahoma by the Sea", "MACK Town", "McHickleyville" and "McKinleymobile" came from the area historically having lower property values, and a larger concentration of mobile homes.

Current history

The area serves as a bedroom community to neighboring Arcata and Eureka. Property values increased dramatically in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and the larger McKinleyville community has experienced gentrification. The town has made numerous attempts to incorporate as a city, but all of them have failed and the community is still trying and struggling to become a city.

Demographics

As of the census of 2000, there were 13,599 people, 5,277 households, and 3,604 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 651.4 people per square mile (251.5/km²). There were 5,494 housing units at an average density of 263.2/sq mi (101.6/km²).

The average household size was 2.58 and the average family size was 3.01.

Transportation

Land

U.S. Route 101 extends north and south through the community. The route lies to the west of the majority of the community and bisects a small portion of the area. State Route 299 connects to U.S. Route 101 at the northern end of the nearby city of Arcata. SR 299 begins at that point and extends easterly to serve as the major traffic artery to the east for the community of McKinleyville.

Humboldt Transit Authority (HTA) is the major provider of public bus transportation in McKinleyville and the county. HTA has several stops in McKinleyville. Dial-A-Ride service is available from Humboldt Senior Resource Center through an application process.

At times, vehicle traffic into and out of McKinleyville has been restricted due to landslides on the U.S. Routes. A 7.0 magnitude earthquake on November 8, 1980 caused an over-crossing at Tompkins Hill, just south of Eureka, to collapse.

Hammond Trail

The Hammond Trail consists of over five miles (8 km) of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails linking Arcata, McKinleyville, and the surrounding areas. Following the historic Hammond Lumber Company railroad grade, the trail begins at the Hammond Bridge – which crosses the Mad River near the Mad River County Park – and extends north to Clam Beach County Park just south of Little River State Beach (Note: There is an overnight campground at Clam Beach County Park).

The Hammond Trail is also a recreation and transportation corridor traveling through rural and suburban areas of Humboldt County and is a part of both the California Coastal Trail (CCT) and the Pacific Coast Bike Route (PCBR).

Air

The Arcata-Eureka Airport is a full service airport located in McKinleyville. The name of the airport comes from the names of the primary population centers that it serves. The location of this airport was chosen to serve as an experimental field to test landing during heavy fog conditions. Due to weather patterns and geographic conditions the area is one of the foggiest in Northern California.

Murray Field is a commuter airport for private and charter air service. Murray Field is located at the northern end of Eureka, California roughly 15 miles (24 km) to the south.
