Caspar is the remnant of a "company town" with a colorful past. Evidence of the Caspar Lumber Company's holdings are everywhere, from the quaint stucco Paymasters' building at the south end of town to the big white house on Caspar Road just north of the North Coast Jewish Community Center. This beautiful craftsmen-style home was once the residence of the Company manager. Caspar Creek still bears the pilings of the old logging mill and the rickety wooden bridge that spanned the gulch separating Caspar from Mendocino.
Caspar Point, the land that juts out to sea forming the northern arm of Caspar Bay, features several architecturally exciting homes.
