Camp Meeker, CA, Homes for Sale
Camp Meeker takes its name from Melvin Cyrus Meeker, a lumber baron who established several mills in the area circa 1866.
Located on the North Pacific Coast Railroad (since abandoned), Camp Meeker was a center for logging the coast redwoods that built and then rebuilt San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake. After logging the trees, Meeker subdivided Camp Meeker in 1898, and lots (each 25 feet (7.6 m) by 12 feet (3.7 m) with a one-room cabin) sold for $75. Around 1900, it was primarily a vacation place for people from San Francisco.
Once home to the now legendary Camp Meeker Players who played at the outdoor stage and the "barn", both venues having returned to nature.
Before becoming a "village" Camp Meeker was a lumber "town" followed by a summer enclave with the "year rounders' and the "summer folk".
Prior to the Camp Meeker Players; locals and summer folk, put on extremely entertaining talent shows. Summer resident, Marion Labor; owner of a studio in San Francisco, choreographed Saturday night performances at the "Stage". Marion's work included but was not limited to; rehearsals, assembling and producing costumes, music and lighting. Logs provided seating for the shows. On occasion gentlemen from Bohemian Grove would take in our local performances.
