What To Do in Geyserville?

Diavola_IMG_2018_07_12_01942_150Thanks to all who responded to this question on our facebook page.

The results were as varied as our residents, and here are a few that received multiple votes.

It should be no surprise that Geyserville's restaurants, tasting rooms, coffee shop, and bars received top votes. Eat, drink and be Geyserville!  Meeker, Mercury, Trentadue, Coppola, Zialena, Route 128, and Locals all got mentions as favorite tasting rooms. Geyserville Coffee Company and the Gun Club Bar & Lounge also received favorable mentions.

Favorite eateries mentioned were Diavola, Geyserville Grille (especially for breakfast), Catelli's and Rustic, covering just about every option in town.

Favored activities held some expected and unique responses. Several locals mentioned picking up trash as a favorite (or perhaps necessary) activity. Horeseback riding, walking in the vineyards, shopping, viewing the sculptures, visiting the river or Lake Sonoma, or checking out the animals at Isis Oasis also were mentioned. One response even mentioned Olive Hill Cemetery. 

In the shopping category, several folks mentioned antiques and vintage--Gin'Gilli's and LocalsCreate--and, of course, Bosworth's store was a favorite.

GRAND OPENING!

bOSWORTH_localscreate_Grand Opening Logo
Come celebrate with Harry Bosworth, Gretchen Crebs and Carolyn Lewis. Welcome LocalsCreate, the newest store in town, and visit the updated Geo. M. Bosworth & Son General Merchandise, the oldest new store in town. 

Saturday, September 1st
Noon to 5:00 pm
21060 Geyserville Avenue

The joint Grand Opening promises to have lots of fun for everyone. Read more about Bosworth's and LocalsCreate below.


LocalsCreate

Locals Create_from FacebookThe newest store in Geyserville belongs to Carolyn Lewis. LocalsCreate was carved from the portion of the Bosworth & Son store that used to house garden tools and supplies. 

Now the space is occupied by Carolyn's cute and eclectic vintage shop that houses an expanded collection of the unique items she featured alongside wines in Locals Tasting Room. Her shop will also feature a creative space where she will offer Pop-Up Crafts classes in the evenings--something she had done with great success at her Locals tasting room.

Stop in and visit her new venture, LocalsCreate, in the space between Bosworth and Son General Merchandise and the Geyserville Visitors Center.  Don't miss the Grand Opening celebration on September 1st!

The NEW Bosworth & Son Store is OPEN!

Bosworth_IMG_2018_07_12_01907When Bosworth's store temporarily closed earlier this year, many folks panicked. Then we all found out Harry and Gretchen were just putting the store through a metamorphosis of sorts, to bring it in tune with Geyserville today.

The "new" store has been spruced up, cleaned out, and de-cluttered.  It has also been painted, rearranged and re-merchandised. Gone are the feed, plumbing supplies, and garden tools. Here to stay are the western wear, boots, jewelry and hats, along with a few other visitor friendly items, like local books and gifts. They are also including a new hat steaming and cleaning service, and a museum space in the back of the store.  

Bosworth_IMG_2018_07_12_01910Bosworths_Jewelry2_IMG_2018_07_12_01904

The store will now be open only Thursday through Sunday--but for extended hours of 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.  They will no longer close for lunch.  

Please come to the Grand Opening on September 1st, but the store is open NOW, so stop in anytime they are open.



Geyserville Museum

Bosworth_IMG_2018_07_12_01920The Geyserville Historical Committee has just officially become the "Geyserville Historical Society"--GHS. The small collection displayed in the Visitor Center was just a tiny sample of what the Historical Society has collected over the years. With the remodel of Bosworth's store, Harry has graciously allowed the Historical Society to set up a museum in the back of the store. 

Ann Howard, the Historical Society's diligent history sleuth and organizer extraordinaire, has been hard at work researching, chronicling, labeling, cleaning, and organizing the archives. 

Museum_Old Bottles_IMG_2018_07_12_01901_150 Mueum_Barrels_IMG_2018_07_12_01902_150
Each week the displays get better and more complete, though  it is still a work in progress. The store and museum are both open every Thursday through Sunday, starting at 11:00 am, and we would like to encourage everyone to stop by and check it out. 

Ann loves a good historical mystery, old photographs, and artifacts. She will be happy to fill you in on their progress, answer questions and do research on your own history, when time permits. She is in the musem most days. Harry can also answer questions and provide a good story or two about the history of Geyserville. So, please stop in soon. Museum hours are the same as store hours -- 11:00 am to 7:00 pm, Thursday through Sunday.
