Crescent City, Del Norte County California

Crescent City, Del Norte County, PO, an incorporated city and County seat, is pleasantly situated on a slight indentation of the ocean coast, facing the south, and protected from the northwest winds by Point St. George. The harbor being open to the south, is unsafe for vessels in the winter storms. A good substantial wharf has been built out from Battery Point, at which vessels discharge at almost all times of the year, but during heavy southeasters the waves break over it.

Communication is maintained with San Francisco by steamers and sailing vessels, and a large business is carried on with the interior, although rendered difficult by the mountainous character of the country.

Crescent City is in Latitude 41° 44' 32" north and Longitude 124° 11' 22" west, and 350 miles north north west from San Francisco. The surrounding country is cultivated to a considerable extent, and flour and saw mills are among the manufacturing institutions maintained.

One newspaper, the Courier, is published weekly.
