History is Our Story


The Ferndale Museum, through the efforts of its staff and dozens of volunteers, is dedicated to presenting programs that educate, entertain, and inspire our community to embrace and preserve its rich, unique history. In the past year some of our most successful events have been “Who Was Who,” a dramatized tour of the Ferndale Cemetery; a presentation of pioneer Seth Kinman’s buckskins and violin to the Museum by his great-grandchildren; and several showings of the Museum’s original movies, including "Letters Home," "Walking the Wildcat," "Home on the Grange," "The Cameo Fair," and "The Lost Village of Camp Weeott."

We are always eager to welcome new ideas and new volunteers to help plan and implement our events and programs. To be part of the fun, give us a call at 707-786-4466 or drop us a line at
