Healdsburg History

The city of Healdsburg is centered around a 19th century plaza. This plaza remains, to date, an important focal point for both tourists and locals. Healdsburg was founded under the Mexican rule, though its existence dates back thousands of years. The Pomo Indians were among the first settlers in this region and they built their villages along the dense oak and madrone forests lining the banks of the Russian River. New settlers arrived in the region in the mid-1800s, and the California gold rush of 1849 brought many people in its wake. The city of Healdsburg was officially incorporated in 1867, and the advent of the Northwestern Pacific Railway in 1871 brought tremendous growth and prosperity to the area.
