Red Bluff, California                     Kraft Memorial Free Library
Circa 1909
Red Bluff, California

The Kraft Memorial Free Library building is one of the finest examples of architecture in Red Bluff, with a rich history as part of the Red Bluff community. State of the art when it was built, it stands today as a glorious part of Red Bluff's history. Built in the Classic Revival Style, also known as Neoclassic, it is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Exquisite oak woodwork, an enormous stained glass in the rotunda, three fireplaces, Douglas fir floors, and magnificent carved stone are but a few of its highlights. The main floor is accessed by the grand staircase, with interior stairs to the half basement and upstairs trustee room.

Sitting on the corner of Hickory and Jefferson Streets as one of the cornerstones of the Victorian district in Red Bluff, it is surrounded by verdant lawns, beautiful gardens and picnic tables for visitors to enjoy. Zoned for both commercial and residential use, it would make a lovely home, event venue, or commercial location as it is currently. For more information and pictures go to
