I started to notice a lot of brass plaques around town.  I’m sure there is way more history than can be told by a simple dedication of a building or a bench to a person’s name.   Click on the image to show the pause button if you want to stop the show.  I’ll make a separate post with just “bench dedications”.

Train History

Sebastopol had running freight trains down Main Street until the late 1970’s.  The tracks weren’t removed until the mid 1980’s.  There are still many vestiges of the Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railroad left in town.   At least we can still use the right-of-ways as walking/biking paths.
