The Victorian Village of Ferndale

Ferndale, California

Ferndale has been the home of the Foggy Bottom Milk Run since its inception in 1978. A didden jewel of California's Lost Coast, we are proud and honored to hold our event in this beautiful locale.

Victorian Village

From its well-preserved Victorian-era main street, to its five-minute drive from California’s magnificent, undeveloped Lost Coast, Ferndale is a surprising trip back in time, with just enough modern quirkiness to make it unique.

Fernbridge

Fernbridge, considered a marvel of engineering in its time, was built in 1911 and is one of the earliest examples of a cast concrete bridge.

Its beautiful Romanesque design makes it a source of great pride in the community.

Step Back in Time

In this small gateway town to the Lost Coast, 265 miles north of San Francisco, civic pride is of utmost importance, and its byproducts -- lovely old buildings, picturesque streets with cheerfully lit shops -- are almost incidental.

Fairytale Setting

California’s best-preserved Victorian village, you just might like it better than any place you ever lived. Flower lined streets and lovely gardens behind white picket fences surround Ferndale’s gingerbread mansions.
