Guest House Museum on Main Street Fort Bragg

Perhaps one of the quietest (off Main Street/Highway 1) and most interesting spots is the SW Corner of Fir and Stewart. Among the finds there:

  • Four Craftsman bungalows (1915-1918)
  • The 1886 Charles Weller House (the only house in town listed National Register of Historic Places)
  • The 1876 Calvin Stewart House (Stuart mapped out the original town)

In the distance you can see the old Skunk Train and, above it, the Guest House Museum.

Check with your lodging host for a copy of the brochure and drive into take a step back in time.
