Kellogg, Sonoma County, PO 16 miles north east of Santa Rosa, and 6 miles northwest of Calistoga. Knight's Valley, one of the most lovely and fertile sections of California, lies along the western base of Mount St. Helena, and has a length of about three miles, by one in breadth, with bordering hills, gently sloping and rounded, that add greatly to its area. On its eastern verge is the new town of Kellogg, occupying a pleasant site, and in a position to command a large trade. The Napa Valley Railroad is but six miles distant, at Calistoga, and is reached by a good road over a low line of hills that separate the two valleys.

Other roads center at the place, from Santa Rosa westward, the Geysers and Healdsburg on the north, and to the quicksilver mines of Sonoma and Lake Counties in the neighboring mountains. A beautiful and never failing stream of pure cold water flows from St. Helena, giving an abundance of the precious element for domestic use or irrigation, and offering great power for manufacturing purposes.
