Take a cruise through this town today and it pretty much looks the same…
This is not the first Humboldt Times Building, but I don’t know that this one is either.
The geography is pretty distinct, but I can’t tell where this is. Again I’m asking for clues…?
I have to admit I am not a big parade fan, but I am really glad one took this photo.
My daughter was one of the many accomplished students who graduated from Humboldt State University this weekend.
We are incredibly proud and I am thankful this institution is a part of our community and here for all of us.
I pledge to work on geographic diversity, but hopefully blog visitors understand that I do live right down the road from where this photo was taken oh so many years ago. And have poor impulse control. And do think all the rocks in the pasture tell a story …
Arcata, Humboldt Co. Cal
August 22, 1862
My Dear Father, Mother, Brothers, and Sisters,
It has been a long time since I wrote you. And until a few days ago I thought a long time since I heard from any of you.
I received some time ago a letter from Ella and Emma dated April 23, 1861 & a few days ago one from David of April 20, 1862 and one on yesterday from Emma dated 27th June last. Neither of which I have answered so I must write now to the whole of you.
The only exciting thing now before our County people is the Indian—They have made war with the white population, and are killing every one of us who dares to venture out & every family who dares to remain 5 miles in the country, all citizens have now left the country who lived that far out from Arcata and have gone to the town; and the people of the town of Trinidad 18 miles from here up the coast have all left, some for San Francisco and others to the towns of this county.
