Moss Landing was named after Captain Charles Moss in 1866. Captain Moss constructed a 200-foot wharf in Moss Landing to load local grain for waiting boats. Later Moss sold his holdings to the Pacific Coast Steamship Company. Today Mosslanding has become the site for a number of Marine Research facilities. There are restaurants along the harbor. The Moss Landing area includes two state beaches and slough wet lands.
