NWPRRHS Program -- SANTA ROSA

The next program will be on Monday July 23, 2018

The mainline of the southern division of the NWPRR stretched from San Francisco via Tiburon to Willits. But it began life as the San Francisco & North Pacific, a Sonoma County road running from San Francisco to Cloverdale via Donahue Wharf on Petaluma Creek.
Incremental extensions went west to Guerneville and Sebastopol, north to Ukiah and Willits and south to San Rafael and Tiburon.
NWPRRHS President Charlie Siebenthal will discuss the history of this line from 1870 to 1906 aided by photos and maps from the society's archives.

The program is free to the public so bring a friend to Monroe Hall, 1400 West College Ave, Santa Rosa.

Parking in the rear of the building.

Take 101 to the College Avenue exit. Turn west onto College Avenue. Monroe Hall is on the left just past the Safeway Store.

For further information please contact Charlie Siebenthal at 707-838-8882 or vandtrr@cs.com

Please mark this date on your calendars.

Doors open at 7:30 pm., with the program starting at 8. Refreshments will be served. There is no charge, although donations to cover the cost of renting Monroe Hall are welcome.
