Nestled on the side of Sonoma Mountain, Petaluma is a small town with a historic downtown. Many of the buildings in the quaint downtown area have survived the 1906 San Francisco earth quake, adding to the charm of this local. It is no wonder this town has been the backdrop for many movies hoping to capture the charm and carefree feel of yesteryear. With history in the Gold Rush and many historic ties to a rich agricultural heritage, Petaluma is a town with the work ethic of the ranch and the culture of the artist. Now a hub for technology and innovation, Petaluma is where history, culture and innovation find confluence.
