  • The General Vallejo home is part of Sonoma state park so your fee will also get you entry here. It is well worth the visit to see how a wealthy family from the 1800's lived. It is definitely an opulent home for the time, and some aspects are surprising, such as there are no bathrooms and everyone had a pot in the room. There were also fireplaces in every room, and the servants had their own stairs. The kitchen was also in a separate building and they had a Chinese cook. The house is quite handsome, but it is remarkably small inside. The dining room is nice and they had some nice dinnerware. The house also has a storehouse that has exhibits on the family and some genealogy, where almost every daughter married an Anglo American, in attempt to save the family holdings no doubt. Napoleon Vallejo had his own tiny house above the pond and he left it at 17 years of age to go to Santa Clara College, which is now Santa Clara University. It has been approximately 159 years since this family built this home, but the house is in really good condition and is fully furnished with their things. A very worthwhile visit not to be missed if you want a fuller history of California and Sonoma.
  • Wonderful piece of Sonoma history. Sprawling grounds, beautifully preserved. Very quiet and serene.
  • An old Victorian-style house where lived General Vallejo and his family. Many, many artifacts on display.
  • Well preserved hospital home. The raised Pond and walkway in the back is very cool.
