Montgomery Village is an open-air shopping mall in Santa Rosa, California. It comprises more than 75 retail and commercial outlets including a supermarket, 12 restaurants, five banks, and a satellite U.S. Post Office. Its anchor department store is Ross Dress for Less.[2]

History[edit]

Santa Rosa developer and two-time city councilman Hugh Codding purchased a pair of orchards south of Montgomery Drive with the intention of building a shopping complex. He created Montgomery Village Development Co.[3] and began construction on the center in 1949; it opened the following year, featuring about a dozen businesses. The shopping center was part of the unincorporated Montgomery Village neighborhood that Codding proposed as its own city; the area was incorporated into Santa Rosa in 1955.[4]

The center has since grown to nearly 300,000 square feet.[5] Its Village Court Stage is the site of regular live concerts and events.[6][7]
