Sebastopol, CA, Homes for Sale
Sebastopol is about a 20-minute drive from the Sonoma Coast, between Santa Rosa and Bodega Bay, and is known for its liberal politics and small-town charm. Subastopol was once primarily a plum and apple growing region. In the second half of the 20th century, the apple industry struggled to compete with other apple-producing regions and has gradually declined in economic significance. Winegrapes, however, are now predominant, and nearly all lands once used for orchards are now vineyards. World-famous horticulturist Luther Burbank had gardens in this fertile region. Sebastopol hosts an annual Apple Blossom Festival.
There is some debate about how the name "Sebastopol" came into being. At one time, four other California towns were also named Sebastopol (specifically, one in Napa County renamed Yountville, and others in Tulare, Sacramento and Nevada counties). The town was originally called Pinegrove, and how the name change occurred is rumored to have something to do with a bar fight in the late 1850s, which was likened to the long British siege of the seaport of Sevastopol during the Crimean War. The original name can be seen in the names of two of the longer-standing downtown Sebastopol businesses, Pinegrove consignment store, and the Pinecone restaurant.
