Wife and I enjoyed the small tour. The staff will give you some history upon arrival. It's self guided. Lots of history about the logging industry including tools of the day. Third floor was closed off and we didn't get to see a bathroom or kitchen? I would have liked to see the kitchen. Enjoyable but a sense that it... More

Part of the museum is still being renovated but the parts that are finished are very well done. The docent was very informative and friendly. Lots of old photos made this interesting.

This is a great place to start learning about the history of Fort Bragg. It's small, you can cover it in about 30-45 mins but it's free (small donation suggested) and gives a lot of information that would perhaps help you see the town in a different light. It's only open a couple of hours during the day so please... More

The sign said they opened at 10:00 and at 10:10 they still were not open and coming back later in the day was not an option for us.

A very knowledgeable docent was willing to share information and tales as long as you wanted to chat. This is a lovely house to view with some interesting surprises we found throughout. Lovely home.

Interesting displays in each room, particularly (to my mind) the room with the history of Pomo life in the Ft. Bragg area

Take a half hour minimum and tour this lovely old home turned museum. Gorgeous wood work and stained glass in this mansion, but no furnishings from the original house, lots of old photos and written history of Ft. Bragg and the mining industry, plus the 1750 year old slice of tree outside is unbelieveable. Why would anyone cut that down??... More

From the 1750 year old slice of redwood tree on display out front to the one-of-a-kind artifacts of the logging history of Fort Bragg displayed within to the well-documented history of the Guest House this is an amazing historical building in Fort Bragg.
