CHL# 4 GENERAL M. G. VALLEJO HOME
The home of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, known as ‘Lachryma Montis’ (Tears of the Mountain), was built in 1850. Its name was derived from the springs that now are the source of Sonoma’s water supply. General Vallejo, born at Monterey July 7, 1808, was commander of the northern Mexican frontier, founder of the Pueblo of Sonoma, and a member of the first Constitutional Convention of California.
