Humboldt Harbor Historical District

Captain Jonathan Winship made the first recorded entry into Humboldt Bay by sea in June 1806, and Josiah Gregg's party visited the bay in 1849. By 1850 the Laura Virginia Association had founded Humboldt City, Union (Arcata), Bucksport, and Eureka - in subsequent years, the bay became a major North Coast lumber port and shipbuilding center.
