Mission San Francisco Solano
California State Historic Landmark 3
#003 Mission San Francisco Solano
On July 4, 1823, Padre Jose Altimira founded this northernmost of California's
Franciscan missions, the only one established under independent Mexico. In 1834 secularization
orders were carried out by military commandant Mariano G. Vallejo. San Francisco Solano became a
parish church serving the pueblo and Sonoma Valley until sold in 1881. This plaque replaces one
originally dedicated by the Historic Landmarks Committee, Native Sons of the Golden West, 1926.
Sonoma SHP, NW corner of Spain at 1st St E, Sonoma.
