Petaluma /pɛtəˈluːmə/ is a city in Sonoma County, California, in the United States. It is estimated that in 2006 the population was 54,660.[5] The current population is closer to 60,000 people within the city limits. According to sonoma-county.org, the population of Petaluma including all unincorporated areas is about 70,000 people.

Located in Petaluma is the Rancho Petaluma Adobe, a National Historic Landmark. It was built beginning in 1836 by General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, then Commandant of the San Francisco Presidio. It was the center of a vast 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[6] and probably refers to Petaluma's proximity to Sonoma Mountain.

Petaluma has a well preserved, historic city center[7] which includes many buildings that survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
