Telling Suisun City's Story

A group of local residents is taking on a new task that is going to be terrific for Suisun City: publishing a book on the history of this terrific City!

Garry Rowe, president of the Suisun City Business Improvement District, and Sandi Hudson, of Hudson Business Networks, are spearheading this effort. They are working with Arcadia Publishing, a specialty publisher that works with local authors to put together picture-based niche histories.

But Garry & Sandi are going to need help from everyone who has old photos, articles, documents and other information from the founding of the City in 1846 to the present. Their contact info is below. We'll keep you posted on their progress.

For inspiration, check out this collection of historical images provided to the Suisun City BID website by the Vacaville Heritage Council.

This notice was posted by Carol Bogart in the Daily Republic this morning:


SUISUN CITY - A historical photo essay book and self-guided walking tour are in the works and promoters believe both will heighten interest in Suisun City, past and present.

Residents are being asked to submit historical photos they may have to Suisun City Historic Waterfront Business Improvement District board president Garry Rowe, 707-631-0609, or Sandi Hudson at 707-429-9794.

Hudson can also be contacted at
