Andersonia

Andersonia in Mendocino, California is the latest United States one place study to be added to the One Place Studies Directory.

After losing his wife in 1902, Henry Neff Anderson purchased 10,000 acres of redwood forest in northern California. He built not only a lumber mill but a small community named after him to house the almost 200 employees he recruited.

Unfortunately, Henry died at Andersonia in 1905 following a mill accident. Litigation following his death caused sawmill operation to cease and an earthquake the following year scuppered the chances of the mill being sold to a new owner. Andersonia became a ghost town.
