Who knew? Cloverdale=Utopia in 1881!

This sleepy town at the edge of northern Sonoma County was home to a group of followers of the French thinker and utopianist, Etienne Cabet. These “Icarians” set up  their commune just south of what is now Cloverdale in 1881.  

There’s a marker indicating where their schoolhouse was. I’ll be looking for it on the way up tonight to our gig in the Cloverdale Plaza.
