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.
