Random information on the term “NAPA”:
Napa (/ˈnæpə/) is the largest city in and the county seat of Napa County, California. It is the principal city of the Napa County Metropolitan Statistical Area, with a population of 78,130 as of the 2019 United States census estimate. It is the second-largest city in California’s Wine Country, after Santa Rosa. Napa was incorporated as a city in 1872.
The name “Napa” was probably derived from the name given to a southern Nappan village whose native people shared the area with elk, deer, grizzlies and cougars for many centuries, according to Napa historian Kami Santiago. At the time of the first recorded exploration into Napa Valley in 1823, the majority of the inhabitants consisted of Native American Indians. Padre José Altimira, founder of Mission San Francisco Solano in Sonoma, led the expedition. Spanish priests converted some natives; the rest were attacked and dispersed by Mexican soldiers. American farmers began arriving in the 1830s.
Before California was granted statehood in 1850, the Napa Valley was in California’s District of Sonoma. In 1850 when counties were first organized, Napa became one of the original counties of California. At the time, its boundaries also included Lake County to the north. By this time, the indigenous people were either working as field laborers or living in small bands in the hills surrounding the valley. Tensions between the white settlers and Native Americans broke into war in 1850, with a white man’s death resulting in soldiers hunting down and killing all the natives they could find, driving the remainder north toward Clear Lake. In 1851, the first courthouse was erected. By 1870, the Native American population consisted of only a few laborers and servants working for the white settlers.
