Fort Bragg History
Fort Bragg is a coastal town in Mendocino County. Once a military fort before the Civil War, Fort Bragg has developed into a popular tourist destination thanks to its beautiful scenery. The town has a population of over 7,200 residents and covers an area of nearly three square miles.
Fort Bragg is known for its Glass Beach along the town’s coastal edge. In the 1900’s, residents would throw their garbage over the cliffs, anything from glass to appliances and cars. In 1967, the area was closed and clean up efforts were made to fix the damage. After so many years, the ocean’s waves has cleared the beach and smoothed the rough pieces of glass into smooth, colored pieces that coat the beach today. This draws many visitors each year.
In even the smallest communities, people will find themselves in trouble with local police and could be arrested and taken to jail. If someone you care for has been arrested in Fort Bragg, finding the right bail bondsman could help smooth over the rough spots of this difficult situation.
