The Brannan Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in 2020 by a dedicated group of local civic and community leaders.
The Brannan Center’s vision is to serve as a bicultural community resource for educational and nonprofit organizations and to provide a venue for musical and theatrical performances.
Sam Brannan, attracted by the thermal hot springs and bucolic settings of the upper Napa Valley, founded the town of Calistoga in 1859 to build the "Saratoga of California." In 1874 he deeded land at the intersection of Washington and Berry Street (the "heart" of Calistoga) for the construction of the Calistoga Community Presbyterian Church.
The building has served as an important site for congregants and secular community services, arts and educational offerings - including the Calistoga Food Pantry, English as a Second Language (ESL) classes, and other multi-cultural programs.
After multiple decades of use providing a home for several of Calistoga’s nonprofit organizations, the building is now in need of our help.
Core to the Brannan Center’s mission is to serve as a model of fiscal and civic responsibility, promoting education for youth in the arts, cross-cultural integration and a healthy community.
