Morro Bay

This old photo was taken from the Black Hill area of Morro Bay which is now part of Morro Bay State Park. Many of today's modern roads did not exist. Many of the trees that founder Franklin Riley planted were small but growing. If you walk the Black Hill trail today you still see an amazing view of our community and Morro Rock!

Early 1900's

This photo of two men spending their day clam digging in Morro Bay during low tide was taken in the early part of the 1900's. The men are approximately where State Park Road is today below the Natural History Museum. Fishing, clamming and oyster farming are part of our deep aquatic history!
