Once surrounded by redwood forests, Duncans Mills dates back to the 1870s when two young Scotsmen, Sam and Alex Duncan, set up a sawmill along the banks of the Russian River.  When the forests began to dwindle and the lumber business faded, Duncans Mills became a popular getaway for Bay Area visitors.  Today, modern day-trippers enjoy shopping, dining, and wine tasting in the historic town.

Many of the homes in Duncans Mills are vacation homes and rentals, although Duncans Mills does have a small year round population.  A bevy of art and antique galleries, shops, and friendly eateries - along with summertime events that include the annual Russian River Rodeo, Civil War Days (which is the largest Civil War reenactment in Northern California), and all the water sports the Russian River has to offer - make it a perfect spot for residents wanting out of the rat race, retirees, or part-timers looking for a comfortable weekend retreat.

Duncan Mills Homes for Sale

Duncan Mills is a small, unincorporated community that was originally founded all the way back in 1870. Back then, Duncan Mills featured two hotels, a small general store, a saloon, a meat market, and a blacksmith, and today, its unassuming downtown still maintains an “old west” kind of look and feel to it, only with State Road 116 jutting right through the center of town. Sonoma County home buyers wanting more of a country atmosphere should definitely consider the Duncan Mills area, and with Sonoma Coast State Park also situated right up the street, it’s widely thought of as a great location for anybody who loves to hike or get outside and stay active as well. And for a town with a population of under 200, there’s certainly more community amenities here than you may think, which include a couple restaurants and a bakery, several small shops, and even a couple art galleries too.
