Cloverdale, Sonoma County California

Cloverdale, Sonoma County, PO 32 miles north of Santa Rosa, at the terminus of the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad, is a flourishing village situated in the Valley of Russian River, and surrounded by a fine agricultural and grazing region. From it stage routes radiate into Mendocino and Lake Counties, and to the celebrated Geysers, a few miles to the east, which wonderful springs constitute one of the attractions to tourists, and a fashionable resort during summer.

To these resources are added the many discoveries of rich quick silver veins in the mountains lying between Russian River and Clear Lake valleys, which are most accessible via Cloverdale, and which will give it much trade. The locality is claimed as one of the most delightful for residences in the State.
