Before Myers Flat was founded in 1867, it was purchased during the Gold Rush by Elias & Andrew Myers for $1,000. The Lolangkok tribe called the area Kunteltcobetl but it soon began to be known as Myers to the settlers.
Even though it was remote, because of the traffic, the next generation of Myers (who were known for their planting 700 apple trees, 300 pear trees, and flower gardens) decided to build a hotel to serve as a station line stop. Today, that hotel still stands and nearby is the Myers family cemetary.
Myers Flat is located in the heart of the Humboldt Redwoods State Park on the Avenue of the Giants. With easy access off highway 101, you can soak up some local color by visiting businesses providing a variety of services. Make a stop at the Post Office to mail your post cards, drive through a tree (everyone should have this experience at least once), or just stand in awe as you take in the trees. Myers Flat is friendly, warm, and invites you to visit.
