Below is some general information about Calistoga:
Calistoga is a city in Napa County, California, United States. The population was 5,155 at the 2010 census.
Calistoga’s economy was based on mining (silver and mercury) agriculture (grapes, prunes and walnuts) and tourism (the hot springs). One of the early visitors was Robert Louis Stevenson. Yet to write his great novels, he had just married Fanny Vandegrift in San Francisco in May 1880, and the couple honeymooned at the Calistoga Hot Springs Hotel days later. Desiring to stay in the area, they moved from the hotel to an abandoned cabin at the nearby Silverado Mine on Mount Saint Helena. While working on other stories Stevenson kept a journal which became the Silverado Squatters describing many local features, residents and characters. Calistoga made national headlines in 1881 when Anson Tichenor claimed that he had invented a way to extract gold from the waters of the hot springs. Tichenor’s invention was soon proved to be a fraud.
Today, Calistoga retains its charm of yesteryear with a walkable downtown much as it was when spa visitors arrived by train. At the very top of the Napa Valley, centrally located between Napa and Sonoma counties, Calistoga remains the historic hot springs resort destination of wine, water, and wellness. Named a Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 2001, Calistoga enables a visitor to see wine country as it was before freeways and fast food – only two-lane roads lead there and fast food franchises are banned by law. Scenes from the Disney movie Bedtime Stories starring Adam Sandler were filmed in Calistoga in June, 2008.
In the state legislature, Calistoga is located in California’s 3rd State Senate district, represented by Democrat Lois Wolk, and in California’s 4th State Assembly district, represented by Democrat Mariko Yamada. Calistoga is also in California’s 5th congressional district, represented by Democrat Mike Thompson.
Calistoga is at the north end of the Napa Valley Calistoga AVA, part of California’s Wine Country. Thus there are numerous wineries within a short drive, including Chateau Montelena Winery, Sterling Winery and Schramsberg Vineyards. Calistoga itself, however, is noted for its hot springs spas, a local specialty being immersion in hot volcanic ash known as a mud bath. Nearby attractions include an artificial geothermal geyser known as the Old Faithful of California or Little Old Faithful. The geyser erupts from the casing of a well drilled in the late 19th century. According to Dr. John Rinehart in his book A Guide to Geyser Gazing, a man had drilled into the geyser in search for water. He had actually simply opened up a dead geyser.
