This is a visitor's center, an historic home and a museum tucked into one place definitely worth a visit. We were given a helpful map and useful information from a friendly guide.

Particularly liked the videos in the theater. Caretaker gave us the choice of what we would like to see.

The story of the house and its occupants gives you a feeling for how things were in the "old days." They have a model of the town from the 18th century that is very interesting. When we were there they gave a talk about the whales in the area, then conducted a walk out to the ocean to look for them. Been there several times and enjoyed each visit.

When I visit a new place I love to find out some history about the area that I am visiting. The Ford House was very close to the MacCallum Inn so we walked over to it and enjoyed learning about Mendicino's history.
