"The following is a student created blog regarding the history of the Petaluma Watershed. This blog is part of a series from students at Casa Grande participating in the Watershed Classroom with educators Paula Biancalana and Jolene Thinnes."

Lyman Byce build the first incubator in September 1879. Lyman incubator company was built on North Main St., but today we know it as Petaluma Blvd. By 1920 more than 22 million eggs went out of Petaluma on the Petaluma River and the economy rose. The incubator helped a lot because it made shipping food to San Francisco faster.
