Caspar website header

Caspar is a small unincorporated village on the north coast of California. Caspar's cluster of houses huddles together for protection from the storms and big ocean. Caspar is practically invisible to folks whizzing past along Highway One -- a steeple (now the Jewish Community Center), a schoolhouse (now the Community Center) and the remnants of a thriving turn-of-the-century mill town. Caspar (pop. 500+/-) lies between Fort Bragg, our local ‘big town’ and Mendocino, the tourist destination. Caspar is blessed with two perfect beaches, a community center, a bar, a shul, businesses, and a strong sense of place. At least wave when you drive by!


If you want to be universal,
sing your village.

A society grows great
