 Napa City, Napa County California

Napa City, Napa County, PO, County seat and incorporated town is at the head of tide water on Napa River, which to this point is navigable for vessels and steamers of light draught, and a line of boats run semi-weekly to San Francisco.

The Napa Valley branch of the California Pacific Railroad, from Vallejo to Calistoga, runs through the town, it being fifteen miles from the former, and twenty-seven from the latter place. By this means communication is maintained through the valley, and with the metropolis, twice daily. The town is in the center of the beautiful and fertile Napa Valley, with pleasant surroundings of hills and plains, of oak-covered knolls and cultivated fields, of handsome cottage homes and fruit-laden orchards, swept by a gentle summer breeze from the bay and the ocean, giving health and purity to the atmosphere; it knows no winter, but claims perpetual loveliness.

 These sanative and pleasant conditions caused its selection as the site of the Branch Insane Asylum, the building for which is in course of construction, to cost about one million dollars. This is located about two miles from the town, on a slight elevation, and will be a conspicuous and interesting object to the travelers of the valley.

The schools of Napa claim high rank, and are worthy the present site and romantic surroundings. Besides the public schools there are four first-class seminaries and colleges for the education of the youth of both sexes. The churches and public buildings are worthy ornaments of a thriving town.

The present population numbers about 5,000, and is steadily increasing. Here the business of the county centers, and as its resources of agriculture, mines and commerce develop will it increase.

Two newspapers are published, the Reporter, a wide-spread weekly, and the Register, both daily and weekly.
