Santa Rosa, California

Santa Rosa is a city in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. Incorporated in 1868, Santa Rosa is the county seat of Sonoma County, and has a population of about 167,800. Santa Rosa is located in the fertile Sonoma Valley, and agriculture has long played a part in the city's economic structure. It is also home to nearly two dozen wineries. In recent decades, the healthcare and electronics industries have also been developed. Among the city's top employers are St. Joseph Health System, Agilent Technologies, and Santa Rosa Junior College.

Santa Rosa was settled in the 1830s. After the area reverted to United States control in 1850, a formal street grid was laid out, and the city began to grow. In 1897 Frank and Joseph Grace acquired the Santa Rosa Steam Brewery, and founded Grace Brothers Brewing. The brewery was closed for a number of years due to World War I and Prohibition, but otherwise operated until 1966. The 1906 earthquake caused severe destruction in the downtown area, but the city quickly rebuilt and new businesses were established. Bessone Supply Company was founded in 1939, and sold to Bell Industries in 1981. Today, as Pace Supply, the company is employee-owned and distributes plumbing supplies throughout the Bay Area. High-tech industries began to develop after World War II. Optical Coatings Laboratory, Inc. was founded in 1948 and currently operates as a subsidiary of JDS Uniphase Corporation. Pacemaker and medical device manufacturer Medtronic also has a research and development facility in Santa Rosa.
