The Town of Yountville, which was previously unincorporated, was served first by the County Free Library and then the Napa City-County Library. During the early part of 1800’s the area that now makes up the Town of Yountville was owned by Mexico. In 1831, George Calvert Yount became the first white settler in the Napa Valley. In 1836, Yount obtained a Spanish land grant from the Mexican government, the first such grant to be awarded to a United States citizen in northern California and the Napa Valley.
