Ferndale | KCET
Step back in time with Huell for a "Road Trip" to Ferndale -- an entire town that holds the distinction of being California Historic Landmark #883.
Huell inspects beautiful Victorian architecture, gets some refreshments at the westernmost bar in the continental U.S., visits a historic pharmacy, and stops by a Gingerbread Mansion.
After the "Road Trip" is over, stay tuned for a bonus visit to Clendenen's Cider Works in Fortuna -- home to some of the best fresh squeezed apple cider in the state.
Join Huell as he visits Placerville, founded after the highly publicized discovery of gold in 1848 in the tailrace section at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, only 10 miles away. The resulting migration of thousands of fortune-seekers established Placerville as an important supply center for the surrounding mining camps.
