A short distance down-stream from this spot, at the head of navigation on the banks of Sonoma Creek, an early landing place was established. From the 1830's hides and tallow from the Pueblo of Sonoma were shipped to Yerba Buena , and goods and people disembarked here. By 1847 a town, optimistically named St. Louis, had sprung up and steamers from San Francisco were making regularly scheduled trips. From here stage service carried travelers to Sonoma, Bodega and points between. St. Louis existed as the port for southeastern Sonoma County until silting of the creek and the coming of the railroad to nearby Schellville ended shipping business on Sonoma Creek.
