This is a very rare view of the center of Boyes Springs in the 1930s or 40s, standing near the RR depot, looking east across the Plaza (that is what they called it. Note the palm tree.) In the center is a large sign that says “Boyes Hot Springs”. The tall pole marks where Vallejo St. meets the highway.
Cover of the deed conveying three parcels from Selig Rosenthal to the Sonoma Valley Grange (18627 Sonoma Highway), in 1934. These parcels comprise the hall itself and the parking lots on either side. Apparently, no money changed hands. Rosenthal was the proprietor of Rosenthal’s Resort, which occupied the property of the current (2014) trailer park, Thai restaurant, and abandoned restaurant.
