Profile of Graton, CA

Located just west of Highway 116 on Graton Road, the small town of Graton was founded in 1905 by James Gray and James Brush when the Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railroad came to the area. Early settlers sought their fortune in the Gold Rush and found it instead in the lush and fertile Green Valley of Sonoma County. Once home to a thriving apple industry, Graton is now part of a premiere wine growing region and has two Zagat rated restaurants. Graton’s block long merchant row also includes art galleries, antique stores and unique shops. For more information contact the Forestville Chamber of Commerce.
