Ferndale Travel Guide


Ferndale, best known for its colorful Victorian architecture, much of it Stick-Eastlake style, is worth the 5-mile detour off U.S. 101. Many shops carry a self-guided tour map that highlights the most interesting historic buildings. Gift shops and ice-cream stores comprise a fair share of the businesses here, but Ferndale remains a fully functioning small town, and descendants of the Portuguese and Scandinavian dairy farmers who settled here continue to raise dairy cows in the surrounding pastures.
