On my trip to Stamford this time last week via Route 128 (through the Anderson Valley) I stopped at Navarro to see what, if anything was still left from the days of Captain Fletcher – see yesterday’s blog. Until 1914, Navarro on Route 128 was called Wendling (Woods) – Navarro was the name of what is now “Navarro-by-the sea. Wendling/Navarro, is located eleven miles up the Navarro River from the sea along Highway 128.
Navarro, as it is now, does indeed have a number of very old buildings but in my brief sojourn there I could not link any of them to the logging operations, which we know were there, to the photos I have recently found – see below. If anyone can help in this regard I would be delighted to hear from them.
