CAMBRIA HISTORY
Cambria has had many names - once called Santa Rosa, Rosaville, San Simeon and "Slabtown". The town became Cambria (the Latin work for Wales according to Funk & Wagnall's) in 1869, on the recommendation of a local committee. One story has it that a committee member had recently been to Cambria County, Pennsylvania, and that woodsy, mining area reminded him of home.

Cambria began as a fishing and quicksilver mining town, then later became important for its dairy and lumber exports. Today, the pine covered hills and rugged shoreline attracts artists and tourists. A number of interesting buildings remain from Cambria's early days, including the Old Santa Rosa Church, the Squibb-Darke house, the 100 year old Brambles (now a restaurant), Santa Rosa School, the Hoosegow, The Gordon Howard home and the Lull house, now a part of the Bluebird Inn.
