Petaluma /pɛtəˈlmə/ is a city in Sonoma County, California, in the United States. Its population was 57,941 according to the 2010 Census.[6]

The Rancho Petaluma Adobe, located in Petaluma, is a National Historic Landmark. Its construction started in 1836 by order of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, then Commandant of the San Francisco Presidio. It was the center of a 66,000 acre (270-km²) ranch stretching from Petaluma River to Sonoma Creek. The adobe is considered one of the best preserved buildings of its era in Northern California.

Petaluma is a transliteration of the Coast Miwok phrase péta lúuma which means hill backside[7][8] and probably refers to Petaluma's proximity to Sonoma Mountain.

Petaluma has a well-preserved, historic city center[9] which includes many buildings that survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
