SANTA ROSA, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Santa Rosa is a city in and the county seat of Sonoma County. Its estimated 2018 population was 177,586. Santa Rosa is the largest city in California’s Redwood Empire, Wine Country and the North Bay. It is 55 miles north from San Francisco. The city incorporated in 1868, the third incorporated city in Sonoma County after Petaluma and Healdsburg.
The original occupants of Santa Rosa were the Pomo. In 1800 there were estimated to be 10,000 to 18,000 Pomo in total among 70 tribes speaking seven Pomo languages. The way of life of the Pomo changed with the arrival of Russians at Fort Ross (1812 to 1841) on the Pacific coastline, and Spanish missionaries and European-American colonists coming in from the south and east. The Pomo who remained in the present-day Santa Rosa area of Sonoma County were often called Cainameros. One of Santa Rosa’s high schools, Elise Allen High, is named after a Pomo member who gained fame for her skilled basket weaving.
The first known permanent European settlement of Santa Rosa was the homestead of the Carrillo family, in-laws to Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, who settled the Sonoma pueblo and Petaluma area. In the 1830s, during the Mexican period, the family of María López de Carrillo built an adobe house on their Rancho Cabeza de Santa Rosa land grant, just east of what later became downtown Santa Rosa. It is still standing today, and widely considered the first building in Santa Rosa.
In 1875, horticulturist Luther Burbank moved to Santa Rosa. While in Santa Rosa, Burbank developed more than 800 strains and varieties of plants over his 55-year career. Burbank’s varied creations included fruits, flowers, grains, grasses, and vegetables. One of Burbank’s most successful was the “Santa Rosa” plum. Upon Burbank’s death in 1926 he was buried under the Cedar of Lebanon in his front yard. Luther Burbank Home & Gardens is located in downtown Santa Rosa, and has been named as a Registered National, State, City and Horticultural Historic Landmark.
In 1874, Santa Rosa High School was opened. It is the second oldest high school in Sonoma County, after Petaluma High, which opened the previous year. SRHS was the only public high school for Santa Rosa from 1874 to 1958. The school had several locations. The previous location on Humboldt Street burned to the ground in 1921. The school was moved to its current location and opened in 1924. The school’s current Brick Gothic design was created by W. H. Weeks in 1922. Because of it’s dramatic exterior, Santa Rosa High School was used for several Hollywood movies, including Peggy Sue Got Married and Inventing the Abbotts.
Founded in 1918, Santa Rosa Junior College is the tenth oldest community college in the state. The 100-acre campus is just north of downtown. Santa Rosa Junior College was modeled as a feeder school for the University of California system, a “junior” version of nearby University of California, Berkeley, down to the Bear Cub mascot.
The Redwood Empire Ice Arena (commonly known as Snoopy’s Home Ice) is an indoor ice rink in Northwest Santa Rosa. Opened in 1969, it was owned and built by Peanuts cartoonist and Santa Rosa resident Charles M. Schulz. The Arena offers public skating, private ice time, figure skating, junior hockey, and adult hockey.
In 1971, Trione-Annadel State Park was established in the east side of Santa Rosa. It is adjacent to city run Spring Lake Regional Park. Both offer many recreational activities within their 5,000 plus acre grounds such as camping, hiking, fishing and swimming.
Santa Rosa, as much of Sonoma County, relies on tourism from the wine industry. The newly expanded and re-named Charles M. Schultz Sonoma County Airport, located on the northern edge of town, facilitates tourism as well as business travel to the region.
