HISTORY IS OUR STORY

The Ferndale Museum

The Ferndale Museum is a 501-c-3 charitable nonprofit organization that is dependent on gifts of time, money, talent and historical memorabilia.

Purpose

As an historical and educational museum, The Ferndale Museum fosters an appreciation and understanding of the culture and heritage of Ferndale, California, the lower Eel River Valley and the area as far south as the Mattole River Valley. These objectives are achieved through the collection, preservation and display of artifacts that pertain to or were used by the residents of the area. The museum conducts research and publishes material of historic nature for the education and interest of residents and visitors to our area.

 

Join the Team!

The Ferndale Museum community is composed of over 100 volunteers who give of their time and talents in a variety of tasks: greeters (docents), researchers, cataloguers, gardeners, construction and maintenance helpers, keepers of the seismograph, movie-makers, writers, social media content producers, singers and songwriters, illustrators, clockwork fixers...the opportunities to find your own volunteer niche are endless. E-mail JoAnne Godinho, director of volunteers, or call director Lynn Lourenco at the museum (707-786-4466).

Gift Shop & Bookstore

In our gift shop and bookstore, the museum offers guests an opportunity to purchase local history books, postcards, reproductions of the work of local artists, Ferndale memorabilia and collectibles.
