Vallejo’s Home – Sonoma State Historic Park – Sonoma CA

Description

The WPA restored and renovated the building and ground of General Vallejo's home, during 1936-1938. The parts restored included the residence, servants quarters, the brick Swiss Chalet (this became a museum to house relics of the General and CA history), fountains and grounds. A water system was installed, and garage and rest room constructed. The WPA also built the split rail fence and gothic-style fence on the property.

Acquisition by the state enabled Sonoma County to retain this historical property. If left to local financing, the property may have been lost forever (Goddard).
