Petaluma, California

Petaluma, a city in Sonoma County, California, is home to approximately 57,900 residents. It is the location of many distinguished, well-preserved pre-1906 buildings and Victorian homes. In 1849, pioneers flocked into Petaluma from the eastern United States after the discovery of gold in California. The city’s location on the Petaluma River, in the heart of productive farmland, was critical to its growth during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Petaluma quickly became known for its grain milling and chicken processing industries, which continue to the present as a smaller fraction of its commerce. At one time, Petaluma was recognized as the "Egg Capital of the World". One of the largest historic chicken processing plants still stands in the central area of town; this 1930s brick building is no longer used for the chicken industry. Though Petaluma is no longer known as the “Egg Capital of the World”, Petaluma maintains a strong agricultural base today with dairy farms, olive groves, vineyards, berry, and vegetable farms.
