Explore Sonoma County’s history, with a trip to the town of Sonoma, home to Mission San Francisco Solano, the last Spanish-Mexican mission built in California.
Sonoma State Historic Park preserves the mission and the Sonoma Barracks, as well as the nearby historic home of General Vallejo and other sites. Sonoma was the site of the Bear Flag Revolt, when Californians declared their independence from Mexico.
