Dedicated to Sharing the Heritage of Redwood Empire Railroading
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.
