Located in the state of California and the largest city and the seat of Napa County. Napa is the second-largest city in California’s Wine Country after Santa Rosa. The name of the city was taken from the name that was given to a southern Nappan village wherein the native people have shared the area with the deer, elk, cougars, and grizzlies for many centuries. The majority of the area of Napa Valley in 1823 consists of Native Americans when the expedition of the Spanish priests started and then converted the area’s natives, those who refused conversion were attacked and dispersed by the Spanish soldiers. The California Gold Rush was expanded in Napa City in the late 1850s, and after a severe winter in the goldfields, the miners working in the area sought refuge in the city. It was then that the tent city was erected along Main Street.
