Launched in June 11, Fort Bragg was located around 50 kilometers south of Cape Mendocino and situated one and a half kilometers north of tile Noyo River, at the present town of Fort Bragg, Mendocino County. It was established over the Mendocino Indian Reservation for the purpose of both safeguarding and controlling the area’s Indians.
Launched by 1st Lieutenant Horatio Gates Gibson, 3rd Artillery using a detachment from Company M, the article was named for Captain Braxton Bragg, 3rd Artillery, also a Mexican War veteran and later a general in the Confederate Army.
There has been a time of agitation to have the post’s name changed because of his disaffection but the article retained the name throughout the Civil War.
Take a half hour minimum and tour this lovely older home turned museum. Gorgeous wood work and stained glass within this mansion, however no furnishings from the original house, lots of old photos and written history of Ft. Bragg and the mining industry, plus the 1750 year old piece of tree out is unbelievable.
Why would anyone cut down that?? Unfortunately, at least a piece was stored. Amazing motives. It is worth the time and also the funds to tour here.
The Guest House Museum is set at a sizable historic mansion on Main Street at Fort Bragg (Highway 1). The home is put on a large package, using a beautiful yard and garden.
Inside, the countless rooms comprise photos and artifacts from the city history as a logging town. I likely to find rooms furnished with period furniture, but there’s clearly very little furniture in the house. To find more about it, visit this site.
