Fort Humboldt State Historic Park


Fort Humboldt was established in 1853 to assist in resolving conflicts between Native Americans and gold-seeking settlers. For six months, the post was headed by then-Captain Ulysses S. Grant. The park museum offers an extensive collection of Indian artifacts as well as military and pioneer paraphernalia. Railroad and forestry fans can observe the regularly scheduled steam-ups of two period train engines and the historic logging equipment.
