The Kelley House Historical Museum has an extensive collection of early to current photographs of the Mendocino Coast (over 15,000), and extensive files on the history of the Mendocino Coast. This includes the logging industry and its influence on the Northern California Coast.
Kelley house was built in 1861 by William H. Kelley, one of the founding fathers of the town of Mendocino. The property was deeded to Mendocino Historical Research, Inc. in March of 1975, which in turn created Kelley House Museum.
It is open for visits in the afternoons, daily from June through September but closed Tuesday through Thursday the rest of the year.
