Monticello Wharf

In 1906, passengers disembarking from ferries at the foot of Georgia Street in Vallejo could catch an electric train at the Monticello Wharf and ride as far north as Yountville in the Napa Valley. By 1912 the route was extended to Calistoga and the electric trains eventually made as many as ten round trips a day between Vallejo and cities to the north. From the wharf, the tracks ran up the center of Georgia Street, turned left on Sonoma Boulevard, and continued north to Napa. Electric interurban train service ended in 1937.
