History

Petaluma may be relatively small, but it's made its mark on California history. The Coast Miwok tribe made a home here for centuries before an 1834 land grant gave the area to Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. When gold was discovered in the Sierra Nevadas in 1849 white settlers from the east flooded the region. In addition to mining many of the pioneers farmed the region's rich soil. Throughout the 1860s the city was one of California's largest. Eventually it would earn the label "Egg Capital of the World" thanks to the amazing proliferation of chicken farmers and processing facilities. Agriculture still thrives here, but so do high tech companies and many other business ventures.
