General Overview of Valley Ford, California
Valley Ford is located in Sonoma County, California and is both an unincorporated community and a census-designated place, also known as a CDP. More specifically, it is located 75 miles away from San Francisco to the north and is a part of the San Francisco Bay Area.
In addition, Valley Ford is right by the Estero Americano and is only 5 miles away from the Pacific Ocean. It’s also close to numerous beautiful beaches, including Dillon Beach at 9 miles away.
The total population in Valley Ford is 147. It has actually decreased by over 40%, which is not a good sign for the local community.
Valley Ford’s total area is 2.642 square miles, giving it a population density of 56 people per square mile. This is quite low and shows just how small and rural Valley Ford is.
Of the existing population in Valley Ford, the median age is 39.5 years. This is above the national median age of 37.2 years and the State of California’s median age of 33.3 years. However, many areas in Sonoma County tend to skew even older in age.
39.4% of the population is at least 45 years old.
Unlike with many parts of California, Valley Ford was settled by Europeans before the California Gold Rush. While the Coast Miwok and Pomo tribes of Native Americans lived around the area, the first European settlement in Valley Ford was in 1812 by Russian fur traders. They had come there down from Alaska.
While they remained there for the next few decades, on 1841, they left, as Mexico began ruling the land. Finally, by 1850, Valley Ford became a part of the United States and Sonoma County, with California becoming a state.
It had a grain mill in the middle of the 1800s that proved to be very fruitful. Eventually by 1870, it became a railroad stop on the North Pacific Coast Railroad, on the rail route of Cazadero to the Sausalito ferry.
Many of the local fishermen and ranchers exported their products to San Francisco.
The median household income in Valley Ford is $78,124, which is much higher than the State of California’s median household income of $58,328 and the national median household income of $53,046.
It’s a small, rich area, but it is full of many retirees and those who commute elsewhere for work and entertainment.
There is not much statistical data available in Valley Ford in regards to its crime rate due to the small population of the area.
However, it’s crime rate is not a major issue, since it’s a small community of mostly wealthy citizens. Their isolation though and their wealthy status means that they could potentially be targets.
First Security understands the security needs of Valley Ford and Sonoma County in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.
Valley Ford Residential, Retail, and Personal Security Services
First Security can help protect those in Valley Ford by providing the following specific security services:
- Residential Security: The residents of Valley Ford live quiet lives. However, many of them do take weekend trips to other areas in Sonoma Valley and in the San Francisco Bay Area because of the limited options available in Valley Ford. It should be thought of as a large, rural residential area, since it doesn’t offer much in the way of infrastructure. However, being isolated means that all of the residents should have alarm systems set up, which First Security can provide.
- Points of Interest Security: As already mentioned, there is not much to do in Valley Ford. But because Sonoma Valley is known for its wineries, many of the residents, as well as tourists, venture out. Sonoma Valley is also a beautiful area with many sites to see. Valley Ford’s close proximity to various beaches on the Pacific Coast makes it an ideal place to live for many.
