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.

I know most people don't come to Sonoma to see historical sites but this one is very well worth a short detour from the Plaza in downtown Sonoma. The house is very well preserved with period furnishings and artifacts from the Vallejo family who were...More
