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.

  • Note the intricacy of the construction and the styles implemented to make the buildings in the estate.

  • You can hire a care or bike to get here.

  • Well preserved home and grounds. This was an easy walk from town and well worth the time.

  • This is one wonderful and historic HOME that has been part of Spain, Mexico, and the U.S. General Mariano Vallejo's life and family members were the closest to "royalty" in the days of early California.
