By the early 1850's, newly arrived white settlers had moved into the Humboldt Bay area, causing conflict with the native inhabitants. To protect both indians and settlers, Fort humboldt was established in 1853 and operated until 1866. It became a focal point in the violent struggle between two cultures. Many native Americans were assembled here before removal to reservations.
