Rancher Henry Willard Coe used to own several ranches and portions of the redwood forest the park is now in.
The lands became a state park in 1958, years after Sara Coe Robinson donated the ranch lands.
In present day the Henry Coe Redwoods visitor center showcases a history of how the land became a park, President Theodore Roosevelt’s Visit to the redwoods, and information on past and current redwood habitats around the globe.
Redwoods exist in foggier climates along the coast of coast of California and Oregon.
Redwoods also exist within remote parts of China.
