Near this site was located the Embarcadero de Napa. While the exact date of establishment is unknown, it is recorded that Captain John Sutter sent his schooner Sacramento here in 1844 to get lime from Nicholas Higuerra, the first nonnative citizen of Napa City. Aboard the schooner were Joseph B. Chiles and other members of his party who had left Westport, Missouri in 1843 to come to the Napa Valley. This served as the terminal for passengers and freight well into the 20th Century.
