Noyo — Unincorporated community — Coordinates: Coordinates: Country United States State California County Mendocino County Elevation 108 ft (33 m)
Noyo (formerly, "Noyo River") is an unincorporated community in Mendocino County, California. It is located 1 mile (1.6 km) south of the center of Fort Bragg, at an elevation of 108 feet (33 m). It is named after the Noyo River, on which it lies; the Noyo River in turn was misnamed by white settlers to the Mendocino area after a village of the Pomo people named Noyo several miles north, on Pudding Creek. The Pomo named the creek after their village, and the settlers transferred the name to the larger river to the south.
The Noyo River post office operated from 1859 to 1860. The Noyo post office operated from 1872 to 1918. The city limits of Fort Bragg now come within a block of the edge of the bluff. The few houses outside the city limits, and the commercial buildings near the Noyo river are still known as "Noyo". The headlands near the mouth of the river on the south side (and shore of the river on the north side) are now part of the Pomo Bluffs city park, opened on April 22, 2006.
