Organization Profile

What We Do:

Who We AreOur Mission: Napa County Landmarks protects, educates, and advocates for historic preservation and architectural heritage by preserving irreplaceable historic buildings and properties through educational programs, public policy advocacy, research, and technical assistance. Our FoundingNapa Landmarks was founded in 1974 by John Whitridge III along with a group of local citizens who were upset by the demolition of many of downtown Napa‚??s historic buildings. By the 1980s it was clear that the historic structures and landscapes upvalley needed protection as well, prompting Landmarks to expand its advocacy throughout the County. As the organization extended its geographical reach, its name was changed to Napa County Landmarks in 1986.

Who We Are:

For over forty years, Napa County Landmarks has been offering life enriching events and programs that explore Napa County‚??s cultural heritage, placing a special emphasis on the roles of historic architecture. Napa County includes Napa, Yountville, Calistoga, St. Helena, American Canyon and various small communities within the county. We have seen highs and lows through our fascinating history here in Napa County, and our tours provide a fresh look at the amazing houses, people, and buildings that give Napa County and its beautiful towns and cities a one-of-a-kind character. Our tours provide an opportunity to view private homes and gardens, meet leaders in Historic Preservation, and stroll the charming streets of places such as Calistoga and St. Helena. Dine at great outdoor restaurants, stay at a five-star waterfront resort, and escape the winter doldrums while discovering the area‚??s surprising cultural heritage.
