Napa, California is the county seat of Napa County, California. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 72,585.

The City of Napa was founded by Nathan Coombs in 1847. The first business establishment in the town was a saloon built by Harrison Pierce a former miller at the Bale Grist Mill.

When California was granted statehood in 1849, Napa Valley was in the Territory of California, District of Sonoma. In 1850 when counties were first organized, Napa became one of the original counties of California.

It was the gold rush of the late 1850s that really built Napa City. In 1858 the great silver rush began in Napa Valley with quicksilver mines operating in many areas of Napa County. The most noted mine was the Silverado Mine, near the summit of Mt. St. Helena.

Today, Napa Valley is the hub of wine country in California and probably the most recognized wine region in the United States.
