 St. Helena, Napa County California

St. Helena, Napa County, 18 miles northwest of Napa City, is a lovely little village, on the western side of Napa Valley, on the line of the railroad from Vallejo to Calistoga. The large vineyard, wine cellar and distillery of Mr. Charles Krug, are in the vicinity, and constitute an important feature in the business of the place, he making about 100,000 gallons of wine annually. His fine gardens, with orange and other semi-tropical trees and fruits, are proof of the wealth of the soil and equability of the climate. A great deal of wine is made by other parties. In the neighboring hills, veins of gold and silver bearing quartz have been discovered, giving a prospect of converting St. Helena from the quiet summer resort to the busy mining town. Some quicksilver mines nearby have been successfully worked. A public school, with 280 pupils, is maintained with great care. One newspaper, the Star, is published weekly.
