Captain Fletcher’s Inn at Navarro-by-the-Sea on Route 128

I decided to go to Stamford last week via Route 128 (through the Anderson Valley) rather than the slightly quicker Route 20 (through the Jackson State Forest). When I turned the corner from the Coast to the winding piece of road at the mouth of the Navarro River I was surprised to see that Captain Fletcher’s Inn was boarded up. The Inn is the last of buildings that a hundred or more years ago was a thriving community.

I was not completely surprised. I knew the Inn had been the subject of a tremendous local effort to raise funds to renovate it. I determined to have a look on the Internet to see what was going on. It’s a great story and rather than me repeat the story go here to get it from the horse’s mouth.

The Captain Fletcher’s Inn website has a wonderful section on the history of the people and the place – well worth a read if you are into Mendocino Coast history.
