Calistoga History

Calistoga is located in the upper Napa valley, which was initially the home of the Wappo Native Americans. The Spanish colonized the area in the late 17th century. Prior to Mexican Independence, Calistoga was the site of several villages. From 1830 to 1840, much of Napa valley was divided into large ranchos by the Mexican government, following the country's independence. The first American settlers arrived in Calistoga in 1840. The city derived its name from a combination of the words California and Saratoga.
