Crockett: The “Company Town”

The “C&H” stands for the California and Hawaiian Sugar Company which at one time is said to have employed 95% of Crockett residents. C&H Sugar (as it’s now known) has been operating in Crockett since 1906 and funded many of the town’s schools and civic programs, according to Wikipedia.

The Old Homestead

We began our trip to Crockett with a visit to The Old Homestead (995 Loring Avenue), a house built in 1867 by Thomas Edwards. Edwards bought the land in Crockett from California. Supreme Court Judge Joseph Crockett.

Next we checked out the Crockett Museum which is just 100 yards from The Old Homestead at 900 Loring Avenue. Manager Dick was a super-kind host.

Dead Fish

We were super-hungry by now and headed to The Dead Fish restaurant (20050 San Pablo Ave., Crockett, CA 94525) for brunch at 11am.

Sugartown Cafe + Yoga

It was time for coffee so we ducked into Sugartown Cafe at 611 2nd Ave., Crockett, CA 94525:

Doux Yoga

The Sugartown Cafe is run by a husband/wife team and they offer yoga upstairs in the beautiful Doux Yoga studio:
