What happened to the town of Essex?

February 18, 2013

Ok, so now I seem to be hooked on posting again, if only temporarily.

Is this Essex (Hwy 299 between Arcata and Blue Lake)? Looks like the right topography and I think that train trestle is still there. And so, if this is Essex, what the heck happened to it? I don’t know that any evidence of the town remains…

Maybe Essex (County of Humboldt Collection)
