This northernmost town in the Napa Valley is home to approximately 5,000 residents and is famous for its trademark sparkling water, as well as its hot springs and spas. In 1885, California’s first documented millionaire, Samuel Brannan, founded Calistoga, purchased 2,000 acres, and, in 1862, opened the area’s first spa. With the completion of a railroad six years later, the rich and famous from San Francisco arrived, as did prosperity for the town and spa. The town has been awarded “Distinctive Designation” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and enjoys a rich history of commerce that includes silver and mercury mining, agriculture and tourism. The downtown core offers a more “Western” ambiance than the polished feel of Napa Valley’s other tourist communities, however its Calistoga Ranch and Solage Resort are contributing to the fact that more and more of the well-known and well-heeled are choosing to visit Calistoga.
