It’s a very small town nestled in a small valley that lies between and among the coast range of mountains.

Both are in the County of Mendocino. Ukiah is the seat of the Mendocino County government.Anderson Valley is not a valley of fertile flat lands as some are that you might know. Rather it is a valley of low foot-hills shaped by a small river that courses through it and the many little side streams that find their way to the river.

Apple dryers were a common sight. There was industry thriving there also, related to products from the redwood forest that was abundant in the area. Lumber and “split stuff”, fence posts, grape stakes, shingles and shakes were all split out of redwood logs.

Boonville itself only has a smattering of stores, schools, taverns and other things that fill the needs of the people in the valley. As in most small towns Boonville also has a volunteer fire department.
