Mendocino County is a county located on the north coast of the U. S. state of California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 87,841; the county seat is Ukiah. Mendocino County comprises CA Micropolitan Statistical Area, it is located west of the Central Valley. The county is noted for its distinctive Pacific Ocean coastline, its location along California's "Lost Coast", Redwood forests, wine production and liberal views about the use of cannabis and support for its legalization. In 2009 it was estimated that one-third of the economy was based on the cultivation of marijuana; the notable historic and recreational attraction of the "Skunk Train" connects Fort Bragg with Willits in Mendocino County via a steam-locomotive engine, along with other vehicles. Mendocino County was one of the original counties of California, created in 1850 at the time of statehood. Due to an minor white American population, it did not have a separate government until 1859 and was under the administration of Sonoma County prior to that.
Some of the county's land was given to Sonoma County between 1850 and 1860. The county derives its name from Cape Mendocino, named in honor of either Antonio de Mendoza, Viceroy of New Spain, 1535–1542, or Lorenzo Suárez de Mendoza, Viceroy from 1580 to 1583. Mendocino is the adjectival form of the family name of Mendoza. Neither Spanish nor Mexican influence extended into Mendocino County beyond establishing two Mexican land grants in southern Mendocino County: Rancho Sanel in Hopland, in 1844 and Rancho Yokaya that forms the majority of the Ukiah Valley, in 1845. In the 19th century, despite the establishment of the Mendocino Indian Reservation and Nome Cult Farm in 1856, the county witnessed many of the most serious atrocities in the extermination of the Californian Native American tribes who lived in the area, like the Yuki, the Pomo, the Cahto, the Wintun; the systematic occupation of their lands, the reduction of many of their members into slavery and the raids against their settlements led to the Mendocino War in 1859, where hundreds of Indians were killed.
Establishment of the Round Valley Indian Reservation in March 30, 1870, did not prevent the segregation that continued well into the 20th century. Other tribes from the Sierra Nevada mountains were relocated to the Round Valley Indian Reservation during the "California Trail Of Tears", where the Natives were forced to march in bad conditions to their new home in Round Valley. Many of these tribes thrown together were not friends with the other tribes they were forced to live with on the reservation, resulting in tensions still evident today. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 3,878 square miles, of which 3,506 square miles is land and 372 square miles is water.
