General Vallejo's Home

Saves: 2
Check-ins: 7
The exquisite Victorian Carpenter Gothic home was finished in 1852 and housed the California born statesman, Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, Military Commander and Director of Colonization of the Northern Frontier. He had named it "Lachryma Montis" which means "mountain tear" in Latin. The moniker was a rough translation of the Native American "Chiucuyem," the name for the on-site spring. General Vallejo and his wife lived in the wood-frame house for more than 35 years. (Submitted by Christine Peeples)
