Ukiah (/juːˈk.ə/ yew-ky; formerly Ukiah City)[7] is the county seat and largest city of Mendocino County, California. With its accessible location (along the U.S. Route 101 corridor several miles south of CA 20), Ukiah serves as the city center for Mendocino County and much of neighboring Lake County. The Ukiah Valley is a center of a major wine production industry. In 1996, Ukiah was ranked the #1 best small town to live in California and the sixth-best place to live in the United States.[8] The population was 16,075 at the 2010 census.

Ukiah is located within Rancho Yokaya, one of several Spanish colonial land grants in what was then called “Alta California“. The Yokaya grant, which covered the majority of the Ukiah valley, was named after the Pomo word meaning “deep valley.”[9] The Pomo were the indigenous people who occupied the area at the time of Spanish colonization. This word was also the basis for the city name, as Ukiah was an anglicized form of Yokaya.[10]

The first Anglo settler to dwell proximate to today’s Ukiah was John Parker, a vaquero who worked for pioneer cattleman James Black.[11] Black had driven his stock up the Russian River valley and took possession of a block of grazing land at that locale; a crude block house was constructed to house Parker in order to protect him and the herd from the hostile indigenous local population.[11] This block house was located just south of present-day Ukiah on the banks of what was known as Wilson Creek.[11]

The next Anglo settler was a man named Samuel Lowry, who in 1856 constructed a log cabin approximately on the corner of today’s East Perkins Street and North Main Street.[11] Lowery sold his claim to A.T. Perkins in the next spring of 1857, and the latter moved his family into the valley, thereby becoming the first pioneer family of the township.[11] Six others followed to make their home in the community that same year.[11] The first United States post office opened in 1858.[7] By 1859 the population of Ukiah had grown to about 100 people, making it a community sufficient in size to serve as the county seat when the California State Legislature divided Sonoma County to form Mendocino County in 1859.[12]

The town was initially reachable only by stagecoach, with a short rail line from San Francisco terminating in Petaluma, nearly 80 miles to the south, necessitating a horse-drawn trip taking two full days as late as 1870.[13] In subsequent years the rail line was extended further northward to Cloverdale, reducing the stagecoach trip to 30 miles — still enough to maintain the community’s relative isolation and to fetter growth.[13]

Ukiah was finally incorporated in 1876.[7] It was not until 1889 that the San Francisco and North Pacific Railroad completed its line from Cloverdale to Ukiah, linking the Mendocino County seat to the national rail network at last.[14]
