State Historic Park - California

Sonoma State Historic Park is located in the center of Sonoma, California. The park consists of six sites: the Mission San Francisco Solano, the Sonoma Barracks (sometimes called the Presidio of Sonoma), the Blue Wing Inn, La Casa Grande, Lachryma Montis, and the Toscano Hotel. The park was founded in 1909 and originally contained only the Mission San Francisco Solano. The State of California has, over the years, added additional historic locations to the Park. Many of the added venues were associated with the life of Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo who was central to secularization of the Mission; the founding and improvement of the Mexican pueblo of Sonoma; and, the development of Sonoma as an American city.

T he historic, picturesque town of Sonoma is home to Sonoma State Historic Park  —  site of the northernmost Franciscan mission in California and birthplace of the California State Bear Flag. Located in the heart of the beautiful wine country between Napa and Santa Rosa off Highway 12, the town surrounds a central plaza (the largest of its kind in California), filled with charming shops and restaurants. Unlike most parks with one plot of land and geographical boundaries, Sonoma State Historic Park is a series of historic attractions in several locations within the community. The park consists of six sites: the Mission San Francisco Solano, the Blue Wing Inn, the Sonoma Barracks, the Toscano Hotel, and Casa Grande and Lachryma Montis  —  two homes of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, Military Commander and Director of Colonization of the Northern Frontier. MISSION SAN FRANCISCO SOLANO Mission San Francisco Solano was the last mission established in California  — the only one founded under Mexican governance. Padre José Altimira selected and consecrated the site on July 4, 1823. San Francisco Solano was founded at Sonoma to convert Native Americans to Mission San Francisco Solano chapel altar Mission chapel and Padres’ Quarters Northernmost El Camino Real marker Christianity. Members of the Coast and Lake Miwok, Pomo, Patwin, and Wappo tribes were baptized at the mission and used as a labor source. On April 4, 1824, a temporary wooden chapel was dedicated, and the first baptisms were performed. In 1825, a long, low adobe wing for the Padres’ Quarters was finished. Much neglected over the years and then partially reconstructed, the Padres’ Quarters  —  east of the present chapel  —  is the oldest building in Sonoma. Father Buenaventura Fortuni, who lived at the Sonoma mission from 1826 to 1833, continued Father Altimira’s work. Under his direction, the foundation for a large adobe church was laid just east of the Padres’ Quarters in 1827. The Sonoma mission’s sphere of influence reached its peak around 1832, with nearly 1,000 Native California Indians in residence and 10,000 acres of land used to raise crops and livestock. In 1834, the Mexican government secularized all the missions into parish churches. After 11 years of existence, the Sonoma mission building began a decline that ended in its collapse in the late 1830s. A small adobe chapel on the west side of the Padres’ Quarters, built and furnished by General Vallejo in 1840, replaced the original mission church. over the years. Archaeological investigation and restoration programs are undertaken from time to time under the State’s direction. Inside the present-day mission chapel, visitors can view exhibits of mission life, religious paintings, and artifacts  —  as well as beautiful framed watercolors of all the California missions by artist Chris Jorgensen. A monument was erected on the west side adjoining the mission chapel in 1999, honoring the 896 native people who are buried there. A Native American shaman and a bishop from the Catholic Church blessed this sacred burial site. In a quiet courtyard behind the mission stand olive trees, a wall of cactus that dates back to mission days, and wooden benches around a small fountain where visitors can sit and rest. During scheduled school programs, students make Native American-style baskets and candles in the courtyard. THE BLUE WING INN This long, two-story adobe building just across from the mission chapel derives its name from a gambling saloon and hotel of the Gold Rush era. Portions of the building Mission San Francisco Solano chapel After 1881, the chapel and its adjoining residence buildings were sold by the church and used variously as a hay barn, a winery, and a blacksmith shop. William Randolph Hearst purchased the property in the early 1900s and then deeded it to the State. The buildings became State property in 1906, the same year they sustained major e

E l histórico y pintoresco pueblo de Sonoma alberga el Parque Estatal Histórico Sonoma  ,   el lugar donde se encontraba la misión franciscana, ubicado en el extremo norte de California, y donde nació la bandera del oso de California. Se encuentra en el corazón de la región vitivinícola entre Napa y Santa Rosa sobre la Ruta Estatal 12 (Highway 12), el pueblo rodea una plaza central (la más grande de su tipo en California) que se encuentra llena de tiendas y restaurantes encantadores. A diferencia de la mayoría de los parques que tienen un terreno y límites geográficos de un solo tipo, el Parque Estatal Histórico Sonoma constituye una serie de atracciones históricas en varios lugares dentro de la comunidad. Está formado por seis sitios: la misión de San Francisco Solano, el hotel Blue Wing Inn, el Cuartel de Sonoma, el Hotel Toscano, y Casa Grande and Lachryma Montis  ,   dos casas del General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, comandante militar y director de colonización de la Frontera del Norte. MISIÓN SAN FRANCISCO SOLANO La misión San Francisco Solano fue la última misión que se estableció en California, la única fundada Indicador del extremo norte de El Camino Real bajo gobierno mexicano. El Padre José Altimira eligió y consagró el lugar el 4 de julio de 1823. San Francisco Solano se fundó en Sonoma para convertir a los Pueblos Nativos de los Estados Unidos a la cristiandad. Los miembros las tribus miwok, pomo, patwin y wappo de la costa y el lago fueron bautizados en la misión y usados como mano de obra. Capilla de la misión y los cuartos de los Padres El 4 de abril de 1824, se construyó una capilla de madera y se llevaron a cabo los primeros bautismos. En 1825, se terminó de construir un sector alargado y bajo de adobe que formaba parte de los cuartos de los Padres. Muy descuidados a lo largo del tiempo y luego parcialmente reconstruidos, los cuartos de los Padres,    al este del capilla actual, constituyen el edificio más antiguo de Sonoma. Altar de la capilla de la misión San Francisco Solano El Padre Buenaventura Fortuni, que vivió en la misión de Sonoma desde 1826 a 1833, continuó el trabajo del Padre Altimira. En 1827, bajo su dirección, se construyeron los cimientos para una iglesia de adobe al este de los cuartos de los Padres. El ámbito de influencia de la misión de Sonoma alcanzó su pico alrededor de 1832, con cerca de 1,000 nativos de California que allí habitaban y una extensión de 10,000 acres de tierra utilizada para agricultura y ganadería. En 1834, el gobierno mexicano secularizó todas las misiones en iglesias parroquiales. Luego de 11 años de existencia, el edificio de la misión de Sonoma comenzó a decaer hasta que colapsó a fines de 1830. En 1840, la iglesia original de la misión fue remplazada por una pequeña capilla de adobe al oeste de los cuartos de los Padres construida y amoblada por el general Vallejo. los años. Durante ciertos periodos, se llevan a cabo programas de restauración e investigaciones arqueológicas bajo la dirección del Estado. Dentro de la actual capilla de la misión, los visitantes pueden apreciar exposiciones de la vida en las misiones, pinturas religiosas y artefactos, así como también hermosas acuarelas enmarcadas de todas las misiones de California, hechas por el artista Chris Jorgensen. En 1999, se erigió un monumento en el lado oeste colindante con la capilla de la misión en honor a 896 nativos que se encuentran allí enterrados. Un chamán nativo y un obispo de la iglesia católica bendijeron este cementerio sagrado. En un tranquilo patio detrás de misión se encuentran olivos, una hilera de cactus, que data de los días de la misión, y bancos de madera que rodean una pequeña fuente donde los visitantes se pueden sentar para descansar.
