Stamps Dune House

This building was originally constructed by Charles Hudson Stamps
and Rachel Brown Stamps in 1985 as their dream retirement home.
Charles acted as general contractor, using designs adapted from an
earth shelter kit. The Stamps loved nature and enjoyed sharing their
unique home, including the view from the cupola and trails to the
beach with friends, family and church groups. Charles and Rachel
had a long history of supporting nature programs for families and
youth. Charles was honored for his significant involvement in the
creation of the nearby Samoa Dunes Recreation Area.
After Rachel and Charles passed away, and in their memory, the
Stamps Family Trust sold a large portion of the property and the
house to Friends of the Dunes in 2007 for conversion into the
Humboldt Coastal Nature Center - a place for people to gather,
learn, explore and appreciate nature.
