 Santa Rosa, Sonoma County California

Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, PO and County seat, is a busy and flourishing village in the valley of the same name. The small creek which gives its name to valley and town is a tributary of Russian River, flowing northwardly to that stream, and in its course watering one of the most fertile and lovely sections of the State.

The surrounding country is noted for its fruits and grains, corn growing here to greater perfection than elsewhere in California. The town is well built and bears every evidence of prosperity. Two colleges are established here, one under the patronage of the Methodist Episcopal Church South, having an attendance of 200 students, and the other devoted to the Christian Church, having 100 students. Here is also the seat of a religious sect denominated Seventh Day Baptists, whose peculiarity is in holding Saturday sacred, as a day of rest and worship, instead of Sunday.

The town is on the line of the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad, which runs from Donahue northerly through the county to Cloverdale, giving quick communication to all parts. Stage communication is also had with Sonoma and Vallejo, with the Quicksilver region of Pine Flat, and with other places.

Two newspapers, the Sonoma Democrat and Santa Rosa Times, are published weekly.
