Joined the 2-hour walking tour of Mendocino conducted by Jane T, a fascinating story teller and one of the Kelly House docents. It was a great way to see and understand how this charming and remote city came to be.

Our visit to the Kelley House gave us an understanding of how the town of Mendocino came to be. The Ford Museum across the street rounded out the information. They have a short movie that gives the history of the area.

Well worth $10.00 - combines history with local geography, industry, architecture (pardon my spelling), and nature. One and a half to two hours. Meet on Albion St. - not at the Mason's Lodge (which is pictured here on the listing, and now houses a bank)....More
