This tells a story that is best read in conjunction with its up-market partner in Sonoma. Interesting and well described.

Nicely restored and maintained ranch house of General Vallejo. Large building to accommodate many, many ranch hands, servants, family members, and visitors. Well worth a visit. Love the prickly pear too!

Visit downtown Sonoma and see the Mission. Then use your same entry ticket to visit the Adobe State Park. You do have to make a 5 minute drive but they are both very well kept and worth the visits. Make sure to check closing time.

This is one of the best preserved adobe ranches I've seen. It's very important to understand our history through visiting such places. The sound construction made it comfortable throughout the seasons. An hour or two will provide a lifetime of memories.

Interesting history back to General Vallejo. If they have workshop going there's a lot of hands on activities

It is a very interesting place to know better the local history. Although there is not so many things to see (it is small).

This adobe fortress is an interesting place to absorb the history of Petaluma, Sonoma, and California. The self-guided tour lets one take the time you want/need to see the exhibits. Well worth the small cost.
