The area that we now call Napa was first settled in 1847 and quickly grew throughout the mid 19th century, in part due to migrants in search of gold and silver. After the construction of the San Francisco, Napa and Calistoga Railway in 1905, the city became a major economic force for its area, excelling particularly in agriculture and wine production.
Today, Napa is the county seat of Napa County and houses a population of around 77,000. The city is home to “Restaurant Row,” an area that offers plenty of local shops and restaurants, as well as a historic district with beautiful Victorian homes and architecture. There is also plenty of beautiful nature to be seen in Napa, with over 40 parks consisting of over 800 acres of land.
Napa County is perhaps best known for its wine production, which dates back to the mid-1800s. The Napa Valley American Viticultural Area, which is located about 10 miles Northwest of the City of Napa, is home to some of the finest wines in the world. Thanks in part to a Mediterranean climate that offers the ideal conditions for grape growing, Napa Valley is a premier ecotourism destination in the United States, earning almost 4.5 million visitors each year.
Napa is also known as the birthplace of Nappa leather, a soft type of leather that is commonly used for furniture, clothing, shoes – and yes, car upholstery! Nappa leather was invented in the city in 1875 by Emanuel Manasse and has since become closely associated with the area.
Notable current or former residents of Napa include the Doors’ Ray Manzarek, actor Eugene Levy, author Cristina Garcia, FOX News correspondent Adam Housley and NFL players John Boyett and Mike Gibson.
