Bridge over Salt River, c1907. Arlynda (Corners)

Huh. There is a low bridge and a high bridge. Not sure why.

According to Dennis Turner’s Place Names in Humboldt (I have the old edition) Arlynda was the name proposed by John Gardner Kenyon in 1882 for what (I think) used to be an independent community 1 1/2 mile north of Ferndale. Turner says Arlynda is an Indian word meaning merchandise or property. Apparently the first creamery in Humboldt County was founded there in 1890.

Not sure if it was this one…

Probably not one below either-as it looks like it backs into a hillside and it is flat around Arlynda.
