The community of St. Helena is the second largest community in the county and is located on a part of the previous Cane Humana Rancho some 18 miles north of the town of Napa.
It is believed that the first men to settle within the current community limits of St. Helena were two men named John York and David Hudson. In 1846, they arrived in the area after leaving the state of Missouri, and purchased some property from a Doctor named Bale. Then they constructed their homes close to one another, and began raising stock and also started farming.
An Englishman named J. Still bought a tract of land that is located one and a half miles south of What is currently known as the settlement of St. Helena in 1853. Then he bought some property within the limits of the town of St. Helena and constructs a building in which he put a small stock of merchandise. Shortly afterwards he laid out a store and this resulted in the start of the settlement of St. Helena. Mt. Still had a desire to promote the growth of his neighborhood to the best of his ability and he offered to donate much to those pioneers wanted to engage in business. The first man to take advantage of the proposition made my Mr. Still was a man named John Kister who constructed two buildings.
Mr. Kister used one of the two buildings for a shoe making and repair business. These buildings were located on the corner of Main and Spring Streets. A man named A. Tainter built a one and a half story redwood building and opened a hotel during the same year, 1855. A man named Hiram Louderback bought the hotel the following year.
Two men named John Howell, and H. Dixon started a blacksmith in 1856. Another man named Robert Calderwood opened a carriage and wagon manufactory. In 1856, a man named Christian Turkeidson opened a store. Another store was opened by a man named A. Elgin. In 1858, another building was constructed by a man named David Fulton for a saddlery business. In 1857, Mr. Dixon built his home.
The name of St Helena in dispute. While the basis of the name is obvious, however the name of the person who named the settlement has been in question. One authority figure gives the honor to two men named William Taylor and Henry Sill. However, a man named J. Booker, who was another settler has also claimed the distinction himself.
The Tainter hotel burned to the ground in 1860. A man named John Wolf constructed another hotel which, in 1866, also burned to the ground. In 1865, a man named Mr. Rampendahl constructed the National hotel, and sometime later the name was changed to the Van Tassel Hotel. A brick hotel was built by a man named J. Vich in 1867, which was first named the St, Charles and sometime later renamed the Palace hotel by Mr. Vich. In 1881, a man named Mr. Alstrom built the Windsor hotel.
On the banks of the York Creek, the first schoolhouse in St. Helena was constructed. The schoolhouse was relocated to the location of a grammar school building in 1858. A high school was established during the late 1890’s and an appropriation of $30,000 was allocated for a new high school building in 1911.
By a special act of the legislature, the year 1876 brought the incorporation of St. Helena. That same year, the first election was held. The officers that were elected include the assessor, the marshal, and the trustees. The year 1889 brought the reincorporation of St. Helena. The purchase of a sewer farm and the building of a sanitary sewer system through the primary part of the community was one of the first civic acts of importance following the reincorporation of the community.
The White Church, so named because it was painted white was the first church in the county. The church was located halfway between Calistoga and St. Helena. In 1853, this church was built and after about 50 years later was destroyed by fire.
During the early days, until 1867, a society and their members worshipped in the Presbyterian Church. Then they constructed a building of their own. Their pulpit was regularly filled by a resident minister, since that time. In 1857, the First Baptist church was constructed.
Starting in 1900, the co-founder of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, named Ellen White had a home known as Elmshaven close to St. Helena. She died in there in 1915, and the house is currently a National Historic Landmark. Both the Charles Krug Winery and the Beringer Vineyards are also California Historical Landmarks. The community center in St. Helena's was constructed as Carnegie library, and served the community as the city library between 1908 and 1978.
