County seat of Del Norte Co, is a flourishing town of about 400 inhabitants. It is situated 90 miles north of Eureka, on the southerly side of a low promontory, extending from the Coast Range Mountains. At the site of the town it is low timber land, scarcely elevated above the possible reach of running tides. The harbor is an open roadsted, affording good shelter in summer, but unprotected against the southerly winds which prevail during the winter months. The town is well laid out and compactly built. It contains a good public school, the number of scholars enrolled numbering about one hundred and fifty. There are two churches, a Methodist and Roman Catholic.

Of societies there are organized lodges of Masons, Odd Fellows, United Workmen, and Good Templars. Two weekly papers are published, the Crescent City Courier and the Del Norte Record.

The principal industry is the manufacture of lumber, although it has a large mineral and agricultural country properly tributary to it. Gold, iron, and chrome mines, are found within 12 miles of the town. The latter have been worked at intervals since 1869, and considerable ore shipped. The gold mines consist of quartz, placer, and beach, which have been worked to some extent. The iron mines have not been developed, although efforts have been made to secure the necessary capital for that purpose. Several copper mines are located about 30 miles distant, one of which is said to yield very rich ore.

Communication is maintained with San Francisco by steamer.
