Town of Trinidad
California State Historic Landmark 216
#216 Town of Trinidad
Founded April 8, 1850, Trinidad is the oldest town on the northern California
coast. During the 1850's, it served as a vital supply link between ships anchored at Trinidad
Bay and miners in the Klamath, Trinity, Salmon River, and Gold Bluff mines. It was the county
seat of Klamath County (now disbanded) from 1851 to 1854, but its population declined as Eureka
and other area port cities developed.
NW corner of Edwards and Hector Sts, Trinidad.
