"Photo: Exterior view of of the Sonoma Mission at Sonoma SHP."The historic, picturesque town of Sonoma is located in the heart of the beautiful Wine Country between Napa and Santa Rosa off Highway 12. Situated around a central plaza (the largest of its kind in California) filled with charming shops and restaurants, the city is home to Sonoma State Historic Park—site of the northernmost Franciscan Mission in California and birthplace of the California State Bear Flag.
Unlike most parks with a single plot of land and a continuous boundary, Sonoma State Historic Park is a scattering of historical Event Booth imageattractions consisting of six midtown locations near Sonoma's Plaza.  They are: Mission San Francisco Solano, the Blue Wing Inn, Sonoma Barracks, the Toscano Hotel, the Servants Quarters (the remains of La Casa Grande) and Vallejo's Home. Vallejo's Home is also called Lachryma Montis, and is less than a mile west of the Plaza. It was the estate of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, Military Commander and Director of Colonization of the Northern Frontier.

The park's business office is at
363 3rd Street West
Sonoma, California 95476-5632


There are exhibits in the Mission, as well as a museum and gift shop in the Barracks. The Vallejo Home has furnishings of the Vallejo family and there is a Visitor Center and Sonoma/Petaluma SHP's imagemuseum in the adjacent "Chalet". Visitors to the park can stroll through the streets surrounding the town’s historic central plaza. The plaza has restaurants, shops and a Visitor Center.

Dogs are not allowed in historic buildings. Dogs on a leash are allowed on the bikepath between the Mission and the Vallejo Home.
