In the spring of 1812, Ivan Kuskov, a peg-legged officer of the Russian American Fur Company, was the first white man to walk this coast. With a group of 120 Russians and Aleut Indians, he was looking to establish a trading station and base to hunt sea lions and otters. Although Spain claimed this territory, none of its subjects had ever visited; so Kuskov did not seek any permission for his endeavor. He gave the nearby Indians three horses, three pairs of breeches, three blankets, two axes and a handful of beads in exchange for the 1000 acres to establish Fort Ross.

In contrast to the Pomos, Kuskov and his men struggled to obtain a livelihood by tilling the soil, planting orchards, raising livestock, logging redwoods, and harvesting sea otters.
