Welcome to Midtown Petaluma
up-and-coming neighborhood filled with charm in a central location
A central community connecting East Petaluma, West Petaluma, the historic downtown, the Oak Hill Brewster district, and the Foundry Wharf, Midtown is home to a friendly community and the East Washington Commercial District with Target, BevMo, Sprouts, Dick's Sporting Goods, and more. Only an hour’s drive from San Francisco, Midtown is a blossoming Petaluma neighborhood calling to young professionals and families with its teeming retail and restaurant scene — not to mention pleasant surroundings.
Midtown is replete with the same sort of history that Petaluma, one of California’s oldest cities, is known for. In fact, Petaluma’s oldest standing building is thought to be located in Midtown — Bill Soberane's house was constructed in 1858, the same year Petaluma was founded. A beacon of industry in the years that followed, Petaluma’s mixed-use residential and commercial atmosphere overtook its industrial past by the mid-1900s.
Today, Midtown is a flourishing community in Central Petaluma. With about 1,000 homes ranging from bungalows dating back to the 1950s to more historic buildings to even some new construction, there are many choices available for the buyer. Convenient and welcoming, young professionals, families, and retirees are proud to call Midtown their home.
