Preservation Spotlight: Calistoga

Calistoga is in the spotlight this year thanks to the efforts of Mayor Chris Canning, the City of Calistoga, the owners of Brannan Cottage Inn, the Sharpsteen Museum, and community members for their on-going efforts to preserve Calistoga’s cultural heritage. To honor these efforts Napa County Landmarks is highlighting the Sharpsteen Museum to thank them for their years of partnership with NCL.

2015 Ten Threatened Treasures

Each year, Napa County Landmarks has used its list of Ten Threatened Treasures to raise awareness about the threats facing some of the county’s important historic resources. The 2014 list included the Barnett House and the Pope Valley Store, among other endangered historic properties. The 2015 list of Ten Threatened Treasures will focus on properties around the Calistoga area, and will be unveiled on March 31.
