About General M.g. Vallejo Home, Sonoma

General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo was the founder of the city of Sonoma Valley and was staying in an estate just north-west of the Sonoma Plaza till his death. The house, built sometime around 1850, has been excellently preserved. A trip here is a lesson not only in the history of Sonoma Valley but also the then-prevalent architectural norms. In those days, the estate was surrounded by a spring the Indians called Chiucuyem or the crying mountain. It was after this stream that the General named his house Lachryma Montis (mountain tear). The estate was home to a variety of fruit trees and vineyards. There was a storehouse in the premises to store all the fruit produced in the orchards. It was later converted into a residential space and today houses the museum of the Sonoma State Historic Park. Visitors can check out the house, grounds and the museum in the estate.

  • Very interesting home and well preserved. General Vallejo had a colorful history and worth visiting if in the area. Staff was friendly and spoke to him in length about the home and Gen. Vallejo. It is a self guided tour in which they give you a sheet with information that correlates with each room.

  • A beautiful piece of history. General Vallejo's home and grounds. Admission is very reasonable. You can wander through the house & see it as it was when the family lived there. There is a pond out back with the occasional duck and even turtles! There is,a gift shop and bits of historical items on display in that building. Great way to spend a day. Fun, yet a learning experience also.

  • Nice, could use some restoration work.

  • Location of the ancient spring that supplied local Indians then the house and then the town of Sonoma with water. The house and buildings were shipped around the Horn. Incredible! Beautiful plants on the property, heirloom lemons and Prickly Pear cactus to name a few.

  • 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.
