Bruce Robinson, KRCB

As the impacts of high-end tourism stir increasing debate in Healdsburg, a new exhibit at the local museum traces the history of that industry in the north county area.

The large display that greets visitors to the “Destination Healdsburg" exhibit is a detailed recreation of a block of the storefronts that faced the downtown plaza roughly 80 years ago. Curator Holly Hoods says it’s the work of a uniquely skilled volunteer.

Record spending by outside business interests dominated yesterday’s special election in Sonoma County, but Santa Rosa’s Measure C was not the day’s only story.

The North Bay is known for its burgeoning food and wine industry, people travel far and wide to get a sip of our local wine or bite into an organic steak.

Mixed, Late Results in Sonoma County Elections

Nov 9, 2016

The electoral upheaval at the national level was not felt much in Sonoma County’s local races, where big money from Independent Expenditure Committees bought mixed results.

With both houses of Congress and the White House controlled by Republicans going forward, North Coast Congressman Jared Huffman told KRCB Television that he and his colleagues in the Democratic minority will continue to exercise their role as the "loyal opposition," while stopping short of the disruptive tactics GOP lawmakers deployed to thwart the Obama administration.

  Extra or unharvested produce doesn’t go to waste when Healdsburg’s Farm to Pantry gleaners go into action. 

Melita Love, who founded the Farm to Pantry Gleaners seven years ago, says they have been helped enormously by the many Healdsburg area farmers who make their unused fruit and vegetables available to the group.

  The gleaning group sends the biggest share of what they gather to their local food pantry, but Program Director Dani Wilcox says they seek out other hungry recipients as well.

Recalling Sonoma County's Utopian Communities

Jul 29, 2014

  In the late 19th century, Sonoma County was fertile ground for aspiring utopian communities. Some were short-lived, but others endured quite a bit longer, although only relics remain from any of them today. Still, it’s an interesting facet of our local history, one that is examined in an exhibit at the Healdsburg Museum that has nearly run its course. 

This is the exhibit’s final week; the museum is open Wednesday through Sunday from 11-4 each day.

Local Civil War History Displayed at Healdsburg Museum

Mar 5, 2014

 You may be surprised to know that back in 1864, Sonoma County was the only county in California that did not support Abraham Lincoln in the presidential election. Santa Rosa was solidly behind the Confederacy, while Petaluma and Healdsburg were deeply divided. Some local history of that era is on display now at the Healdsburg Museum.

The exhibit, “Sonoma County and the Civil War,” currently on display at the Healdsburg Museum through May 4. The museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 11-4, and admission is free.

Active Shooter Preparedness

The civilian responses that provided the basis for the Healdsburg Police brochure are detailed at greater length in the video below which was prepared by the Department of Homeland Security.
