Years ago, the city of Healdsburg was a dusty, agricultural burg devoted to grape growing and winemaking. But as they say about houses, Healdsburg had good bones, and today homes in the city are highly sought after. Healdsburg's town square, a block of green space featuring a central gazebo that hosts summertime concerts, serves as the community's central gathering place. Today, that town square is ringed by blocks of upscale hotels, boutiques, and eateries that draw foodies from around the world. Visitors come for the farm-sourced food, the wine, and the shopping. So Healdsburg has been discovered, but it’s not overrun. Besides the laid-back atmosphere of the central shopping district, world-class wineries on Dry Creek Road. Living the good life is within reach in Healdsburg. Restaurants include Madrona Manor, which boasts a Michelin star, and the adventurous Barndiva. Nightlife is centered on the Raven Performing Arts Theater, which hosts jazz, rock, and Broadway musicals. Homes in Healdsburg range from Victorians in the central district to one-of-a-kind architectural masterpieces set into the rolling hills that surround the town. To prepare students to thrive in the new green economy, Healdsburg High School has instituted an innovative program called CASA that unites sustainability, architecture, and green construction practices.
