My husband and I were in Mendocino for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year's and they offer a walking tour everyday at 11:00 for 1 hour and 45 minutes. It costs $10.00 per person and is worth every penny! You will learn so much about the history of Mendocino including how it was built and the prominent characters who established the town. Jeff was our tour guide and he told us many, many stories of the people there, a lot of which he has discovered through reading letters and historical documents from the early days. We got to go inside the Presbyterian church and he showed us the bell ringing rope which a knot maker made. In knots and colors it tells the entire history of the times starting with when the church was built in the late 1800's. Amazing and unique!
After the tour we went into the museum upstairs to see the bedrooms set up to show the Victorian era. We saw the downstairs when we first arrived. Very interesting place and history! You will not be disappointed if you do the tour, and it will help you understand more about this little town and the surrounding area.
