Casper on the Mendocino Coast of Northern California near Mendocino

Caspar is a small village on the coast of Northern California just north of Mendocino Village. Caspar is practically invisible to folks whizzing past along Highway 1. A church steeple (now the Jewish Community Center), a schoolhouse (now the Community Center) are the remnants of a thriving turn-of-the-century mill town. Caspar is blessed with two perfect beaches, a western type bar, art galleries, and friendly, independent, artsy residents.

Caspar Headlands may be looked upon as an intensely impacted industrial site abandoned to cattle nearly half a century ago. From these lands and the forest beyond, a thriving mill extracted and shipped millions of board feet of virgin redwood. In 1946, a well-developed railroad network extended 26 miles into the forest (but never connected to a main line.) Lumber was shipped via "dog hole schooners" that moored in Caspar's sheltered anchorage.

The Caspar Inn has existed continuously as a roadhouse since 1906, when Caspar was a booming logging town. It still provides the coastal community with live music, libations and dancing.

Jug Handle State Reserve is a special place. Few places on earth display a more complete record of ecological succession. Located next to Casper half way between Fort Bragg and Mendocino, the park has five terraces represents one stage in a progression of successional environments. Jug Handle, then, is one of the few opportunities to interpret this aspect of the coastal spectrum of ecological succession and landscape evolution.
