About Angwin...
Angwin is a community of about 2500 residents on Howell Mountain. We are in a coastal range of northern California, about 70 mi. north of San Francisco.
The Village ranges from 1600 to 2200 ft. elevation, overlooking the scenic Napa Valley. It is surrounded by vineyards and forests.
Many Angwin residents work for Pacific Union College, a liberal arts college with a national reputation, or the nearby St. Helena Hospital.

44 Years of College History
. . . Up in Smoke . . Sad
The old Pacific Union College "President's House" burned down last week. A sad loss. It represented a chunk of Angwin history, because six college president's called it home.
The house was built in 1914, eight years after Pacific Union College was established and several years before World War I. The College's top administrators lived in the campus house and entertained thousands of faculty, staff and students therein over a period spanning 44 years. The early years.
The presidents included C.W. Irwin, W.E. Nelson, W. I. Smith, H.J. Klooster, Percy Christian, and J. E. Weaver. Some old-timers will recognize the house which was moved in 1958 to Newton and Bay streets.
Thanx to Gary Shearer, PUC historian, for this information.
The fire began in the attic of the house and spread so fast firemen could not stop it. Cause unknown.
