Historical Society of Santa Rosa


Santa Rosa has much to study. History in Santa Rosa has always taken a backseat to development and several possible projects have lain untouched. From the Hoag House of 1856, the Fountain Grove’s Round Barn and, of course, perhaps Santa Rosa’s biggest historic oversight the Maria Carrillo Adobe, we have important pieces of our history strewn in fields or simply melting into the adobe from whence they came.

It will be the historical society’s mission to find these projects and preserve or restore them and, of course, make the public aware of them. Our list of possibilities is long but since our first meetings with a handful of people we have added almost 100 interested folks.
