What’s up in Railroad Square?

Oct 10, 2012 in Development & projects, Entertainment, Events, Miscellany

Railroad Square is our own historic downtown with local shops, restaurants and businesses owned by people we know!  In some cases the same family has run the business for generations. (It is no wonder that some of us rarely bother traversing through or around that great obstruction of a building that divides downtown Santa Rosa!)  Here’s the latest:
