Petaluma's Past
A LOCAL HISTORIAN SHARES HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CITY'S HISTORY.

The Carlson-Currier Silk Mill

BY KATHERINE J. RINEHART

1885
1871
1858
On April 8, the State Legislature
approves the act to incorporate the
town of Petaluma.

Peter Donahue initiates
regular service on his newly
constructed San Francisco
and North Pacific Railroad
line from the bay steamboat terminals in Marin to
Santa Rosa. The railroad
secures Petaluma's position
as the commercial hub of
Sonoma County.

Some of Petaluma's
most ornate and
elaborate buildings are
constructed, featuring
cast-iron facades and
Italianate detailing.
Examples can be
found throughout
downtown, but some
of the most notable
are located on Western Avenue between
Petaluma Boulevard
and Kentucky Streets.

1879
The first practical egg incubator is
invented by Petaluma residents Lyman
Byce and Isaac Dias, setting the stage for
the city's economic boom.

1892
The Carlson-Currier Silk
Mill Company builds a mill
in the city's new Factory
District. The building
reopened in 2018 as a
Hampton Inn.

1886
McNear erects McNear's Saloon & Dining
House. The adjacent Mystic Theatre is built
in 1911, showcasing silent films and weekend
vaudeville acts.

1864
Grain merchant and
banker John A. McNear
and his brother,
George, erect a brick
warehouse on what
would later be the site
of the Golden Eagle
Milling Company.
