California State Historic Landmark 496
#496 Swiss Hotel
Constructed about 1850 by Don Salvador Vallejo. This adobe adjoined his first
Sonoma dwelling built in 1836. Occupied by various pioneers, it was the house in 1861 of Dr.
Victor J. Faure, vintner of prize-winning wines made from the grapes of the Vallejo family
vineyards. Later it became known as the "Swiss Hotel" because of its use for hotel and restaurant
18 W Spain St, Sonoma.
