There was a very good story about Yountville by Jennifer Huffman in the Napa Register awhile back, Slow, quaint Yountville suits most just fine, which reminded me of the article I wrote for Relocation Bay Area Magazine about a year ago. Her story does get to why many of us who live here truly appreciate the haven Yountville really is and why us Yountvillians are accepting of the fact, there are a lot of visitors here every day of the year. Below are a few quotes from both Jennifer's story and my article, Yountville, A Personal Perspective.  It is been especially busy this last summer which I suspect is being caused by more people in the Bay Area  traveling locally. If you count the entire Bay Area and the greater Sacramento metro area, there are approximately ten million people. I was h...

A true Napa Valley Gem, the Veterans Home of California at Yountville An article by Howard Yune in Sunday's Napa Register, Yountville: Where old vets go to live, reminded me of the many visits I have taken up there. Granted its only one quarter mile away and approximately 100 feet in elevation above my office, but every time I go there I feel as if I am be elevated. Some of visits have been to the Napa Valley Museum, the local Greek Festival at Greek Easter was held there for three years, the wonderful Lincoln Theater and the very thoughtful Verteran's Home Historical Museum of the facility and of many of the Members. Here are a few facts about the Home: Operated by the California Department of Veterans Affairs It was founded in 1884 Currently there are 1,011 residents as of June which...

Here is another Napa Valley town's 2011 residential real estate sales statistics. This time I have chosen Yountville, arguable the heart of the Napa Valley. Yountville besides being such a gastronomic hot spot has been a place well know and a favorite for both residents and those who purchased second homes here. In my estimation, approximately half who reside here are full time residents, a quarter are second homes and a quarter are rentals. Also included here is my ongoing tally of the residential sales numbers, number for sale as of January 1st, average & median prices and days on market (DOM) for the past six years.

  Yountville's First Fire House 1. Yountville's First Fire House Marker Inscription. On this site in April, 1929, the County of Napa built Yountville's first fire house, with Homer Douglas serving as volunteer fire chief and Silvio Tonascia as assistant fire chief. The county provided a 1929 Fageol fire truck to be used by the Yountville volunteer firemen. It replaced a trailer with a tank on it, which replaced a "push cart" that the volunteer firemen purchased when they were formally organized in 1917. The tank was filled at a local well, as the only other source of water was an undependable water line from an earthen dam in Hopper Canyon. During World War II the County and the Veterans Home established a mutual aid agreement for support to the community. In 1946, the then fire chief d...
