The Victorian town Ferndale is one of those towns that looks like it was built just for movies; Charming and picture perfect, Ferndale is no stranger to the big screen, having been the location for The Majestic, starring Jim Carrey, now celebrating 15 years since being released in 2001.  The Victorian architecture makes a beautiful backdrop for the film and has for several other films throughout the years.
