Historic Ranch Site: General Vallejo - Petaluma State Historic Park, Petaluma, CA
Oct 2019
We wennt to General Vallejo Petaluma State Historic Park. This was the site of his ranch. There is a small fee to visit the site. There are exhibits inside and on the grounds to see. In addition, there is an amazing cactus plant that one walks by. There is also a creek.

Great family outing
Sep 2019 • Family
I have lived in Petaluma for many years. I have passed this place many many times and have always thought it would be a great place to visit. I was right it is a neat place to go back in time and learn about our California history. It only took us about an hour to see everything there as there isn’t a lot to see. It was a cheap easy day trip. The lady working there was very friendly.

This 18th Century Spanish hacienda is an intriguing and well-preserved peek into California's agricultural heritage.

Jennifer was Terrific
May 2019 • Couples
What a wonderful experience to walk in and out of the different rooms and imagine what it was like in the early days of California. The staff member whose name was Jennifer could not have been more helpful or informational. Great for both kids or adults.

Interesting and unexpected place to visit
Apr 2019 • Couples
We stopped here to see the sheep shearing, which is done once a year. The park was set up with crafts for kids, the adobe opened for self guided tours through it. Although we've lived near here for over 30 years, this was the first time we had visited, and were pleasantly surprised at what was there. We plan to visit again in May when they have the Living History Day.

California’s Living History
Apr 2018 • Friends
California’s Sonoma History parks & tours are the best around. Your paid day admission is honored at all the parks sites on the same day including the Sonoma Mission.General Vallejo’s Adobe barracks are history stopped in time! Great family experience. Fabulous recreations & period displays throughout are authentic and thoughtfully displayed to show daily life! Buildings have been saved from abandonment over the last century! There are living history reenactments and most of the local schools are sure to take the students there to learn about California’s rich history ! Parking, picnic areas & wallks are well marked ! A must see for any history buff!

History
Jul 2018 • Solo
Big park with beautiful shaded trails.
Amidst is a large fence consisting of big prickly pear cactus - very impressive - leading up to the big 2 story adobe building which once has been General Vallejo's big ranch, the largest one in Mexican northern California.
At the entrance you get a map explaining the purpose of the different rooms and you can leisurely stroll around and have a look.
I found it absolutely interesting imaging how daily life has been at those days.
A highlight was a long talk to the nice and knowledgeable Ranger Mrs. J. Hansen. She also provided me with a lot of good tips what else to see on my journey. Thanks again :-)

Old Adobe in Petaluma
Nov 2017 • Couples
The old Adobe in Petaluma is a fascinating stop when in the wine country. Knowledgeable docents guide you through the buildings that date to the 1830's. There is a certain amount of re-creating, but the actual adobe, beams and glass are authentic. From time to time they have special weekend events to recreate something from the life of the natives or vacqueros. Check their website for times.

Pretty cool place!
Sep 2017
I didn't have a lot of expectations for this little Historic Park. I sort of expected to wander around, then leave. The guide at the entrance, however, was awesome. She told us with all kinds of enthusiasm about the place, the history, etc. Every room had so much information and was really well put together. It was a surprisingly good find and a cool way to end a day trip.
