When you long for small town charm, come to Healdsburg. Envision a town with the best qualities of turn-of-the century America, yet with the ambiance of a European countryside. Tucked between three lush valleys and surrounded by over 60 wineries, Healdsburg is nestled in the heart of the wine country. We're only 65 miles north of San Francisco on Hwy. 101.
Our early residents, the Pomo Indians, built their villages in these open fertile valleys along the Russian River. The wild 1800's and California Gold Rush brought new settlers to the generous farming land here. One early entrepreneur, Harmon Heald, envisioned a grand plan for the village that would be his namesake. In 1857 he constructed a store and post office, sold lots "downtown", and plotted a town complete with a Spanish-style Plaza. Healdsburg was officially incorporated ten years later. The extension of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad in 1871 brought visitors and increased commerce to our booming town.
The City of Healdsburg continues to flourish. We are a full service City, providing electrical, water and sewer services to residents. Healdsburg's safety is ensured by modern and well-equipped police and fire departments. Economic development is guided through the efforts of the local Community Redevelopment Agency.

Forestville's unofficial motto is "Forestville, The Good Life," and is derived from license plate holders sold at the local hardware store. The major road through town, Highway 116, is also called Front Street for the length of the town, a distance of about three blocks, between Covey Road and Mirabel Road. The "downtown" blocks were first built during the 1870s and 1880s, but a fire destroyed many of the older structures, and what remains dates mostly to the early 20th century. According to Sonoma State University professor Jonah Raskin, Forestville "was a gathering place for bohemians and writers and artists, circa 1900.
The town consists of one gas station, one bar, two grocery stores, two convenience markets, a pharmacy, several churches, a number of restaurants, a post office, an assortment of small businesses, a fire station operated by a volunteer fire department, a volunteer-run Youth Park, and 3 ATMs. The annual Forestville Youth Park Parade is held each June as a fund-raising event, and culminates in two days of music, bingo, and carnival rides in the Youth Park, with food and handicrafts booths provided by local vendors and non-profit organizations. Further along the Russian River and eastward, are a number of bed and breakfast inns and wineries.
There are 5+/- acres of certified organic Pinot Noir on the property planted in 2001. The vineyard is under contract with a well known Healdsburg winery.
Further information regarding the vineyard is available upon request to qualified buyers.
