The Sonoma Barracks serve as another reminder of Sonoma’s struggle for freedom. It is just opposite the San Francisco Solano Mission and an integral part of the Sonoma State Historic Park. Built by General Vallejo to house Mexican soldiers, the two-storied structure came into the hands of the US government in 1846. They were used by the US military forces till 1852. After the military emptied the barracks, they were used for civilian purposes. It housed a store, law offices and private residences of the owners in some parts. It was then brought by the California State in 1958 and restored to its original form. The current museum opened in 1980. The display includes cannons and reminders from the Bear Flag movement. You will also see farming equipments and personal items of people participating in the freedom movements. In the courtyard, you will see the outdoor kitchen and the beehive oven.
