My wife and I were wandering around downtown Vallejo and we ended up at the historical Museum on free day! I am fascinated with early California history and this place delivered with all sorts of photos and displays.

This wonderful little museum highlights the Vallejo area and the history it plays with the US Navy which was based at Mare Island, the former home of the the largest US Naval base west of the Mississippi, and decommissioned in 1996. Mare Island has a rich history and contains many National Historic Landmark buildings. It's also the home of Touro... More
