General Overview of Monte Rio, California

Monte Rio, California is located in Sonoma County and is a census-designated place, also known as a CDP. It is located right by the Russian River in a beautiful area close to the Pacific Ocean.


The closest towns to Monte Rio are Jenner to the northwest and Guerneville to the east.


Currently, the population in Monte Rio is 1,152. This represents an increase from 2000 in which it was 1,104, though obviously not by much.


The total area of Monte Rio is 1.977 square miles, giving it a population density of 580 people per square mile. This is a population density that is on the high end of similar rural areas in Sonoma County.


Monte Rio’s median age is 50.7 years. This is an older median age, as it’s well above the State of California’s median age of 33.3 years and the national median age of 37.2.


61.1% of the population is at least 45 years old.


Monte Rio has a very rich history. Originally in the 1870s, it was a railroad stop on the Cazadero to Sausalito ferry route on the North Pacific Coast Railroad. This is typical for many accounts of the origins of the small towns in Sonoma County.


Through the latter part of the 1800s, the area began to be logged. A 160 acre area of redwood trees, though, was put aside by the Sonoma Lumber Company. Eventually, in 1869, the Bohemian Club, which was based out of San Francisco, purchased it. The Bohemian Club also bought other parts of the land, now owning a staggering 2,713 acres in the area. They use this for summer retreats.


A source of controversy exists in Monte Rio, as it is the location of the Bohemian Grove, a secret  private club for men that hosts a two week retreat every summer. Conspiracy theories of satanic rituals exist around it, not to mention documented evidence of how many of the most powerful individuals in the United States convene there, including past and present U.S. Presidents.


The median household income in Monte Rio is a low $34,058. This is well below the State of California’s median household income of $58,328 and the national average of $53,046. Furthermore, it actually represents a decrease from 2000, in which it was $38,299.


Monte Rio has a crime rate index of 54, meaning that it’s safer than 54% of the cities in the United States. This is actually a very good crime rate.


There is a 1 in 534 chance of being a violent crime in Monte Rio and a 1 in 53 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


Both crime rates are much better than the State of California’s 1 in 249 chance of being a victim of a violent crime and 1 in 38 chance of being a victim of a property crime. Monte Rio fares much better when it comes to its violent crime rate.


First Security understands the security needs of Monte Rio and Sonoma County in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.


Monte Rio Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services

First Security can help protect those in Monte Rio by providing the following specific security services:


  • Residential Security: The residents of Monte Rio are not very wealthy, but they live quiet, comfortable lives. Many of them are retired and don’t venture out too much, which the high median age of 50.7 years is indicative of. Nonetheless, their isolation and age means that they are at risk, especially with the property crimes in Monte Rio being closer to the state average. First Security Services can help to install advanced alarm systems.
  • Food & Beverage Security: Much of Monte Rio is based off of the Bohemian Club. During the summer months in which many outside visitors head to Monte Rio for their Bohemian Club retreats, the bars and restaurants in Monte Rio become very popular, since the area is isolated from other cities and towns. Some of the prominent bars and restaurants in Monte Rio are The Village Inn & Restaurant, Lucy’s Lounge & Grill, and Northwood Restaurant. They can become very popular during the summer, and security is essential to make sure that no patrons are disturbed.
  • Points of Interest Security: There is not much to do in Monte Rio, though the surrounding Sonoma Valley is extremely beautiful, especially the redwood trees, rolling hills, and myriad of vineyards present. The Bohemian Club is the main attraction of Monte Rio, and sometimes it can attract curious individuals who are trying to investigate the Bohemian Grove. It’s important that the area has security officers present within it at all times.
  • Cannabis security solutions


By hiring First Security, companies, organizations, and institutions, both of the private and public variety, will be able to ensure that they’re provided professional protection in regards to:


  • Vandalism

Residents in Monte Rio should consider hiring First Security patrol services to make sure that their community and their homes always remain safe.
