GGRM Staff
June 2015

GGRM members are invited to attend special tours of the NWPRR Historical Society restoration facility and the Sturgeons Mill Restoration Project steam powered sawmill on June 21, 2015.

Northwestern Pacific Railroad Historical Society Restoration Facility

NWPRRHS Camoose We will meet at 10am at the restoration facility of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad Historical Society and tour several current projects. The gem of this visit will be the Petaluma & Santa Rosa #1 caboose. The caboose was rescued by GGRM from an auto sales lot on the peninsula and donated to the NWPRRHS in 2005. The quality and attention to detail of this restoration have to be seen to be believed. The site is located off of the E Washington Ave exit of 101 in Petaluma. Go west on E. Washington to one block west of the depot to 110 Baylis Street in Petaluma.

Sturgeon's Mill Restoration Project

Sturgeon's MillThen we are off to Sturgeon’s Mill Restoration Project. It was opened at the present site in 1924 and was in operation until the early 1960's. Sitting in a large redwood grove, the fully operational steam powered mill hosts tours and demonstrations all day. There is a snack bar on site. This is one of the few weekends of the year when year the site is operating.  It will be open from 10am to 3pm. The mill is located at 2150 Green Hill Road in Sebastopol.
