Crescent City
Crescent City The Essential
Built around a crescent-shaped harbor, the largest city in Del Norte County was settled in 1852. It became a shipping and supply center. In 1964 a tidal wave resulting from an earthquake in Alaska destroyed 29 blocks of the downtown. Lumbering, dairy farming, commercial fishing and the cultivation of lily bulbs are major industries.
