Have you ever visited historic Petaluma? Or wondered where such movies such as "Peggy Sue got Married" where filmed? Or even really want to go Antiqueing?
This historic town has been a treasure since before the 1906 earthquake which left it still standing while San Francisco fell down. Originally settled by the Coast Miwok Native Americans, then pioneered by the Spanish from the year of 1776, while America was fighting for its independence. Then 1834, then Governor General Vallejo built his Adobe Petaluma, who handed the area over to the Americans after Spain losts its colonies as well.
Since the 1906 earthquake this is one of the few still standing Victorian cities left in the Bay Area, and it has been used for films for this reason. It is a historical center of California, important to Sacramento.
It also has the states largest antiques resource. It is just above the Bay Area where many come to sell thier old furniture and the locals who kept grandmas keepsakes still have a few to sell. The arts of the past furniture makers will be available to be seen as well as a few China pieces from across the sea and of course any other odd piece brought by both pioneers and Spanairds.
