Humboldt Redwoods State Park is California’s largest redwood state park and includes Rockefeller Forest, the largest remaining contiguous old-growth coast redwood forest in the world.
The world’s tallest tree was discovered in late 2006 in an undisclosed location in the Redwoods National and State Park in Humboldt County. It was named Hyperion and is 379.1 feet tall, which is nearly six stories taller than the Statue of Liberty.
As one of the most written about, and photographed Victorian houses in California, and perhaps in the US, the William Carson Mansion epitomizes the range of possibilities for eclectic design expression that created a peculiarly American style of architecture.
Humboldt County contains over forty percent of all remaining old growth Cost Redwood forests.
Of the 58 counties throughout California, Humboldt County boasts more artists per capita than anywhere in the state.
