This is a great place to stretch your legs and get a historic look at early Mexican California life. There is a lot of walking and some stairs but it's a gentle path and stairway. There were not any other tourists while we were there...More

We returned for a visit to General M.G. Vallejo Home. This is an interesting home of a former Mexican governor to visit in the town of Sonoma. We visited in December.

A self guided tour back to the late 19th century. A modest walk from the Plaza. Take an hour to visit the barn, home and out buildings while learning about the Vallejo family. Entrance fee is included with the Sonoma Mission fee.

The grounds were splendid and the history was interesting. We enjoyed all the photos of the family and notes of their lives.

General Vallejo's house is located a few blocks from the Sonoma main square. It is part of the Mission and Sonoma Barracks historical sites and all three are included in the same admission fee ($3). There wasn't a lot to see there but what was...More

I love trying to visualize how people lived "back then". Mariano Vallejo was important to this entire region and his house shows just how much wealth he accumulated, how he lived, how he farmed and what a visionary he was in certain ways. Thanks, M.G....More
