The name of the city most likely came from a southern Wappo Indian Village which was here for hundreds of years before the white man came. The area was first explored by the Spanish padres, with Father Jose Altimira being the first to come here.

Napa County was one of the early, original counties in 1850. The courthouse was built in 1851. By 1870, nearly all of the original, native inhabitants of the area were gone, either from disease, or disaster. The city was founded by Nathan Coombs on his property in 1848.
