Below is some general information about Sebastopol:
Sebastopol is a city in Sonoma County, California, United States, approximately 52 mi north of San Francisco. The population was 7,379 at the 2010 census, but its businesses also serve surrounding rural portions of Sonoma County, a region known as West County, which has a population of up to 50,000 residents. It is about a 20-minute drive from the Pacific Ocean, between Santa Rosa and Bodega Bay, and is known for its liberal politics and small-town charm. It was once primarily a plum and apple growing region; wine grapes, however, are now predominant, and nearly all lands once used for orchards are now vineyards. World-famous horticulturist Luther Burbank had gardens in this fertile region. The city hosts an annual Apple Blossom Festival and Gravenstein Apple Fair.
Primus lead singer/bassist Les Claypool, author Justin Raimondo, singer/songwriter Nick Gravenites, novelist Francine Rivers, musician Tom Waits and actor Peter Krause currently reside in the area. Sebastopol is home to Analy High School, Laguna High School, Brook Haven Middle School, Gravenstein Elementary School, Hillcrest Middle School, Twin Hills Middle School, Pine Crest Elementary, Apple Blossom Elementary, along with many other private and charter schools.
Sebastopol became known as the Gravenstein Apple Capital of the World. The apple industry brought a steady rural prosperity to the town. In 1890 the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad connected Sebastopol to the national rail network. The town was incorporated in 1902 with schools, churches, hotels, canneries, mills, wineries, and an opera house to its credit. The 1906 earthquake reduced most of these early buildings to rubble, (Sebastopol is only seven miles from the city of Santa Rosa, the worst hit town in the 1906 earthquake) but as elsewhere in the county, the town was rebuilt. In the second half of the 20th century, the apple industry struggled to compete with other apple producing regions and has gradually declined in economic significance. With greater personal mobility and the rise of larger shopping centers in other Sonoma County communities, many residents now often commute to work and shop in the neighboring towns of Rohnert Park or Santa Rosa, while Sebastopol maintains its small town charm.
It is often incorrectly claimed that Sebastopol was the last town in Northern California to have working railroad trains on Main Street. The tracks were actually removed in the late 1980s. Passenger service had ceased in the 1930s, and regular freight service ended in the late 1970s. This was documented by Analy High School students in a 1979 video, Our Train Down Main: a History of the Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railroad. The canneries and apple processing plant are gone from downtown, and vineyards and housing developments have replaced many apple orchards, reducing the demand for freight service. It is often also incorrectly stated that the tracks were removed in the 1990s when the downtown area was redesigned with two one-way streets to enhance traffic along Gravenstein Highway (Route 116). Main Street and Petaluma Avenue were actually designated one-way streets in 1985 in a perhaps misguided attempt to deal with the town’s perennial traffic problem. Today the old train station is now the site of the Western County Museum.
Some famous residents of Sebastopol include: The horticulturist Luther Burbank who established an 18-acre Gold Ridge Environmental Farm in the township in the late 19th century; author Justin Raimondo; Johnny Otis, Rhythm and Blues pioneer; Willard Libby, inventor of carbon dating went to Analy High School; the cartoonist Charles Schulz; rapper Smoov-E; actress Karen Valentine of the television show Room 222; actress Schuyler Grant of the 1985 adaptation of Anne of Green Gables; and the musicians Les Claypool of Primus, singer/songwriters Nick Gravenites and Kate Wolf, and both Jerry Garcia and Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead; novelist Francine Rivers; actor Peter Krause.
