Who We Are

Our 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 Founding

Napa 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.
