Calistoga history:

In 1859, a wealthy San Francisco businessman, Samuel Brannan, came to the area and realized the hot springs and natural mineral hot-water geysers would be ideal for a resort community. He called the area the Saratoga of California and shortened it to Calistoga. He was also responsible for the planting of the many grapevines here. Both the grape industry and the resort area are a large means for the local economy.
