Petaluma’s historic Washoe House restaurant sold per Inside Scoop SF

UPDATE July 23, 2015:  After we posted the below, that evening the Press Democrat released the following article by Julie Johnson, Washoe House North of Petaluma being sold.


From stagecoach stop to saloon, Petaluma’s Washoe House has seen a rich history. It boasts about 156 years worth of legend, actually.

And now, the landmark roadhouse on Stony Point Road at Roblar Road is in new hands, purchased last week by Larry Peter of Spring Hill Jersey Cheese in Petaluma.

For the past 33 years, the two story, red clapboard structure has been owned and operated by dad Bill Drew, mom Edith Drew, and their daughters Cheryl Jensen and Patti Tobin. Bill passed away in 2006, and Jensen took over.

Peter did not reply to messages requesting comment, but Jensen says he told her he had no plans “to mess with tradition.”
