Visit Historic Sonoma Plaza
Historic Sonoma Plaza
Sonoma plaza is the perfect mix of a rich historical tradition and modern sophistication. Located in the center of one of the most elegant wine-growing regions in the world, the city of Sonoma’s historic town square manages to have retained its small-town personality in the middle of a burgeoning wine empire. Complete with spas, upscale eateries, a relaxing open-air plaza, and a California mission, this town focal point is a true testament to the blend of old times and modernity that characterizes the entirety of the Sonoma Valley.
In 1846, revolutionaries calling themselves members of the “Bear Flag Republic” took power from the mighty Vallejo in a coup at the center of this historic town square. The individuals represented Colonel John Fremont and ordered that they were officially declaring the independence of California from Mexican rule. Their tactic worked, and the short-lived Bear Flag Republic was headquartered at this square until earning statehood in 1850.
