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.
