History

The early dwellers of Healdsburg include the Pomo natives, who built communities in open sites along the Russian River. European colony began in the middle of the 19th century, with the earliest Anglo-American colony in close proximity founded in 1836 downstream along the Russian River close to Graton.

Harmon Heald, a businessman from Ohio who had been occupying a vacant area of land since 1850, bought portion of the rancho in 1857, making it the official founding date of the town. Healdsburg was incorporated in 1867. This small town is situated within the former municipality of Mendocino. Healdsburg was reached by the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad in 1872.

Farming, particularly truck farms and orchards, was usual with the current town boundaries from the 1890s up until the 1940s.
