establishment and development
The first permanent settlement of the Europeans in the area where Santa Rosa was located was the family of the Carillo family, legally considered to be the property of Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, who settled in Pueblo and Petaluma, Sonoma. In the 1830s, under Mexican rule, the family of Maria López de Carillo built a house of sun-dried bricks on the land of the Rancho Cabeza de Santa Rosa, just east of the place where Santa Rosa was later located. However, it is said that in the 1820s, before the Carrillo family built the house, Spanish and Mexican pioneers from the southern frontier such as Sonoma near the house had raised livestock in the area and were disassembling the livestock in the Santa Rosa Creek tributary and Matanthus Creek near the present crossing of Santa Rosa Avenue and Sonoma Avenue. Since it was used as a place to disassemble livestock, it is presumed that it was named Matansas Creek and this stream came to be called La Matanza.
In the 1850s, a trading post and a variety store were built at the site which is now the center of Santa Rosa. In the mid-1850s, several influential local people, such as Julio Carrillo, the son of Maria Carrillo, decided to place a grid-shaped road in Santa Rosa, and placed a public square called the old public square at the center of the square. Most of the grid layout of this central town still remains today.
In 1867, Sonoma County approved Santa Rosa as a city of corporate development, and in the following year, 1868, California officially confirmed the formation of a city as a corporate entity, and Sonoma County became the third city. The existing cities were Petaluma City, which was incorporated in 1858, and Heilsburg City, which was incorporated in 1867.
According to the records of the Census Bureau of the United States, after California was promoted to a state in 1850, Santa Rosa, who was in the dust of Petaloma City in the early 1850s and early 1860s, was steadily growing up. In 1870, it became the eighth most populous city in the state according to the national census, and became the location of Guncho of the most populous county. The growth and development that followed was far from rapid, but steady.
As a result, the area continued to grow even though other areas with large populations had declined or stagnated, but by 1900 it was overtaken or overtaken by the new population centers of San Francisco Bay Area and Southern California. According to a newspaper article for "Press Democrat" in 1905, which reported "The Battle of the Train," Santa Rosa had just over 10,000 people.
On April 18, 1906, the San Francisco Earthquake occurred, which destroyed the central Santa Rosa District, but the population itself had no significant impact. However, during the following period, the growth rate of the population was very slow, just like most of the neighboring regions.
In 1943, a famous director, Alfred Hitchcock, shot a thriller movie "Shadow of a Doubt" in Santa Rosa. The movie is also released on video and DVD, allowing you to catch a glimpse of Santa Rosa in the 1940s. Many of the central town buildings in the movie are no longer in existence because they were rebuilt after a strong earthquake in September 1969. However, there are still some remains, like the station building of the North Western Pacific Railway, which uses rough stones, and the Empire Building, which was built in 1910 and has a gilded clock tower.
post-World War II
After World War II ended in 1945, Santa Rosa grew a little over the next 25 years. The population increased by 67% between 1950 and 1970, and the average annual increase of 1,000 people has continued for more than 20 years. The reason for the population increase was that immigrants came in, but they also annexed neighboring areas.
In 1958, the United States Civil Defense Mobilization Bureau designated Santa Rosa as one of the eight regional headquarters. The seventh region included American Samoa, Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada and Utah. Although Santa Rosa remained a major center of civil defense activities (under the jurisdiction of the Emergency Planning Bureau and the Emergency Preparation Bureau) until 1972, the United States Federal Emergency Management Agency was established in the same year and the history of civil defense ended 69 years.
In 1991, the City Government Committee adopted the first comprehensive plan in Santa Rosa. The population at that time was about 113,000. In the 21 years since 1970, approximately 3,000 people have increased every year, and the growth rate is three times higher than that of the previous 20 years.
This comprehensive plan was called "Santa Rosa 2010" and the population of 2010 was set at 175,000. The City Council has expanded the city's borders to the point where it plans to merge in the future and declared that it is the "ultimate" boundary of Santa Rosa. The rapid growth, which was criticized for generating urban sprawl, became a routine infill development (development of the existing part).
Five years later, in 1996, the Municipal Government Commission reviewed the comprehensive plan, extended the plan term by ten years, changed the plan name to 'Vision 2020' (later changed to 'Santa Rosa 2020' and then to 'Santa Rosa 2030'), and added the land area and population figures. The city's current plan has a population of 195,000 as of 2020.
In October 2017, forest fires occurred in various parts of California, and the whole area of Santa Rosa was also hit, causing a lot of damage, including the California wine brewery.
Gay LeBaron, a local historian and columnist of "Press Democrat" paper, wrote two books of history: "Santa Rosa: a town in the 19th century" and "Santa Rosa: a town in the 20th century". The Sonoma State University Library in Ronato Park stores a file of 700 research notes, a collection of books by Gay Le Baron, and primary historical materials including about 10,000 documents.
Santa Rosa has latitude 38 degrees 26 minutes 55 seconds north and longitude 122 degrees 42 minutes 17 seconds west and latitude 38.44861 degrees north and longitude 122.70472 degrees west/ 38.44861 degrees west; -122.70472. According to the National Census Bureau, the total area of the city is 40.37 square miles (104.6 km2), of which the land area is 40.13 square miles (103.9 km2), the water area is 0.25 square miles (0.61 km 2) and the water area is 0.62%.
Santa Rosa is a part of the North Bay area, including cities such as Sonoma, Heilsburg and Sebastopol. It runs along the U.S. National Route 101 corridor and is about 55 miles (90 km) north of San Francisco City via the Golden Gate Bridge.
Santa Rosa is located on the Santa Rosa plain, with its eastern end extending to the Sonoma Creek basin called the Moon Valley and the Sonoma Valley, and its western end in the Laguna de Santa Rosa catchment basin.
Santa Rosa is located in the watershed of Santa Rosa Creek, which leaves Mt. Hood and empties into Laguna de Santa Rosa. There are Brush Creek, Matanzas Creek and Pinner Creek as branches of Santa Rosa Creek in the city. Other bodies of water in the city include Lake Fountain Globe, Lake Ralfinn and the Santa Rosa Creek reservoir.
A famous landmark is Mt. Hood in the east. To the southeast is Mt. Taylor and Mt. Sonoma, which can be easily seen from most of the city area.
Santa Rosa has a cool, humid winter and many dry summer. In summer, fog and low clouds from the Pacific Ocean often move in the evening and in the morning. Usually, it is sunny and warm in the late morning and afternoon, and it is cloudy late in the afternoon, but sometimes it is cloudy all day. The average annual rainfall is 30.45 inches (773 mm), and the number of days of precipitation is 74 days. The largest amount of precipitation was 63.07 inches (1,602 mm) in 1983, and the smallest was 11.38 inches (289 mm) in 1976. The monthly rainfall was the highest in February 1998 at 19.42 inches (493 mm), and the 24-hour rainfall was 5.23 inches (133 mm) on December 19, 1981. In low lying areas, the amount of snow that can be measured is rare, but in nearby mountains, there is sometimes light snowfall.
Days with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees F (32 degrees C) are 28.9 days on average, and days with temperatures below 32 degrees F (0 degrees C) are 30.2 days on average. The highest temperature is 110 degrees F (44 degrees C) on September 13, 1971, and the lowest temperature in the past is 15 degrees F (-9 degrees C) on December 13, 1932.

Santa Rosa is on the Heysburg Rogers Creek section of the Hayward Rogers Creek Fault. By 2030, the United States Geological Survey estimated the chance of earthquakes of more than 6.7 magnitude in the area at 20%.
On April 14, 2005, the Geological Survey Station issued a map showing the results of new measures to measure the ground's shaking during the earthquake. The map shows that the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 was the largest between Santa Rosa and the current Sebastopol, and that Santa Rosa would suffer the most damage from the other cities.
On October 1, 1969, two earthquakes of magnitude 5.6 and 5.7 struck Santa Rosa and damaged about 100 buildings. It was the largest earthquake since 1906. The epicenter was about two miles (3 km) north of Santa Rosa.
nature and wildlife
The Santa Rosa City has only a few undeveloped areas left at its very edge because of the increased population. But it includes Santa Rosa Creek and its tributaries, which run through the heart of the city. The central zone of West 9 Street and the Santa Rosa Creek and the trees in the central city have a nest of giant green herons, giant herons, Japanese herons, Japanese herons and Japanese herons. You may see deer roam about the area near the hill in the east, and you may even come into the town to Franklin Avenue and McDonald's. A wild flock of turkeys is relatively common in several areas, where mountain lions have been seen in the city. Raccoons and black mice can be found anywhere in the city, and foxes and rabbits can be found frequently in rural areas. The city's northern border and its extension are Anadel State Park, extending as far as Mount Sonoma and Sonoma Valley. Anadell State Park is also adjacent to Spring Lake County and Howard Park, forming a continuous park where visitors can share with the wildlife world.

The California State Council is part of the Senate's second and House of Representatives seventh constituencies. The U.S. House of Representatives is part of California's sixth district, with the Democratic Party of 23 in the Cook Ballot Index. As of 2010, all of the members of the Democratic Party of Japan were working.
The gardener Luther Burbank lived in Santa Rosa for over 50 years. He said about Sonoma County, "I'm convinced, as far as nature is concerned, that this is the place on earth that has been chosen." The city's slogan was "a city devised for life."
In the early 2007, the Chamber of Commerce, Santa Rosa City and Santa Rosa Main Street (a community of central city promoters to which the city funded) began seeking new slogans, "Santa Rosa City wants to discover its worth." The Chamber of Commerce said it wanted to find a strategic social message that would encourage visitors, citizens and companies to work after 2007.
Local historian Gay Lebaron commented in the Press Democrat newspaper's March 4, 2007 column:
There is a disconnect between the average Santa Rosa public's perception of the city and reality. ... There were many people, and if there were old people, there were rather new inhabitants, and they didn't intend to live in the fifth largest city in any area. Furthermore, being surprised by the new crime, stuck in the old traffic, and seeing a tall building built, he becomes as mad as hell. When you stop and think of it, this fact explains a lot. We've spent decades wondering why we can't save Carillo brick houses and Hogue houses, why we can't have a square like Heilsburg or Sonoma, why we haven't built an appropriate history museum like all the surrounding towns, why it takes a long time to achieve the goal of the simplest citizen (20 years in all things), why we have to hire an image consultant to tell us what we express. It's because the city of my hometown has grown bigger and exceeded the advantages of a small town. We became a real city while we were complaining about the agricultural town.

The magazine "Forbes" is the best list of places for the 2007 project and career, with the Santa Rosa Metropolitan Area ranked 185th out of 200 locations. It was second on the list five years ago. The increase in business management costs and the decline in employment growth in the region contributed to the decline in housing costs.

In a famous wine country in California, Santa Rosa is the southwest entrance to Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley. There are many winemakers and vineyards nearby, including the Lucian Resort area, the Sonoma Coast on the Pacific coast, the Jack London State Historical Park, and the Redwood tree in the Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve.
The city area extends along U.S. National Route 101 and is a 30-minute drive away from San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge. From Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport, just north of Santa Rosa, you can take Horizon Airlines to Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle. The Municipal Government Commission plans the Sonoma-Marine Area Railway from Larkspur to Cloverdale in parallel with National Route 101, and encourages commercial development and housing development along the lines. The railroad was scheduled to open in 2014 and will be covered by the additional consumption tax passed by the referendum held in Sonoma and Marin Counties in 2008.
The City Government Committee is paying the Chamber of Commerce for the management of the Santa Rosa Conference Tourist Office. The tourist information office of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry is off No. 4 and belongs to an old railway station owned by the city in the historic railway square. Since 2003, the Santa Rosa Council has become a tourist center in California.
In the central town, there are the old Hall Square and the historic Railway Square, where there are shopping, restaurants, nightclubs and theaters. It also has city offices, state and federal office buildings, and many banks and professional offices. Just to the east is the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital Medical Center.
The City Government Committee is sponsoring the private sector promotion group Santa Rosa Main Street and is promoting the revitalization of the traditional business district. There are three new multi-purpose high rise buildings and the new parking lot is under development. The Municipal Government Commission and central-town promoters hope that housing on the new building will accommodate people who will revitalize the area around the clock.
The nearby towns of Bodega Bay, Calistoga, Ganville, Heilsburg, Petaluma, Sebastopol, Sonoma and Windsor are popular with tourists and can be directly from Santa Rosa.
The railway plaza is a part of the central area on the west side of National Route 101, and the area is highly concentrated in historical commercial architecture. The four buildings that use rough-cut stones in the core of the building are attracting attention, and two of them are rare structures that were constructed before the earthquake in 1906. There was an old station on the Northwest Pacific Railroad, which Alfred Hitchcock used at the beginning and end of the movie "Shadow of a Doubt." The Hotel La Rose, which is still in use today, was built in 1907 and was registered as one of the historic hotels in the United States of America in the State Trust for the Preservation of History. In addition, there are many historic buildings such as the former station of the Petaloma Santa Rosa Railway, and the Lee Brothers Building, which are located at the corner of No. 4 and Wilson Street. In the nearby West End there are not only many old houses, but also many old buildings such as stone-built Datak Winery buildings from the 1880s to 1890s and Tatak Marunoya. There is also a former Dell Monte Canned Food store in 1894. This is the oldest existing commercial building in the town, and was rebuilt in Playhouse No. 6 in 2005.

- Historic commercial architecture is concentrated in the railway plaza and the center of Santa Rosa, and is popular among tourists and locals.
- Most of Santa Rosa's commercial architecture was destroyed by the earthquake of 1906, a historic residential area, but many of the houses are safe and still remain today. As a result, there are many old districts that were designated as historic sites around the central town. They have many old houses, including many Victorian houses. Most of it faces a quiet street with trees.
Entertainment and visual arts
The major entertainment features are the Summer Repertory Theater, the Santa Rosa Symphony Orchestra and the Play House of Sixth Avenue. The city is home to 40 theater groups and theater departments in five counties of North Bay, and the North Bay Theater group that works with individual theater groups.
The Summer Repertoire Theater has been fully and widely active in all aspects of theater. The professionals are directors and designers, and students who are good at acting, designing, stage, dancing, music and management are staffed. Five programs will be performed in a repertoire of six days a week from mid-June. The members of the theater group are taking exams in a professional way and learning how to work. The theater is located in the center of the wine country in Sonoma County, one hour north of San Francisco and 45 minutes east of the beautiful Northern California coast.
The professional orchestra, the Santa Rosa Symphony Orchestra, is now led by Bruno Ferrandis. The former conductor Jeffrey Kahein resigned after 10 years and became a music director of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.
The education division of the Santa Rosa Symphony Orchestra has four youth ensemble classifications according to their skill level. Students in Sonoma County who apply for these categories are educated in classical music. There are three full orchestras, depending on the level of the preliminary orchestra, the Discovery Orchestra, and the Youth Orchestra. The chamber is called a young chamber.
The Sonoma County Museum and many individual art galleries offer visual arts. The Sonoma County Art Committee is based in the museum.
law enforcement and crime
There are 259 police officers at Santa Rosa Police Station, of which 172 are police officers. The budget is more than $40 million a year, more than one-third of the city's total budget. In 2007, the shooting by police officers started an independent independent commission of inquiry for private sector.
