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.

We found this by accident after visiting the barracks in Sonoma. Can't beat the price--$3 for all three historical parks. Self guided tour but such an interesting part of CA history. Got to see a rehearsal of Romeo & Juliet as a bonus.

This place give you a bit of local history in a manageable, bite-sized visit. It is hard to believe people lived comfortably here during the time that Vallejo controlled this area. We have taken visitors here several times to get a peek into the Old...More

This is an incredible bargain at $3 per adult -- and the admission fee also gives you entrance to two associated sites in Sonoma (very nearby) as well, though we didn't visit those, we started too late in the day. It's a little tricky getting...More
