Sonoma League for Historic Preservation

Sonoma League for Historic Preservation

What is it about Sonoma? Some say it’s  the world-class wine, bread and cheese or the remarkable countryside. Some say it’s the people. Some say it’s the heavenly weather and the look of the town square.

Whatever it is, Sonoma is a small town with a big soul. Whether you have lived here a long time or this is your first visit, you can’t help but feel it. That Sonoma heart and soul is what The League is all about preserving.

The Sonoma League for Historic Preservation has been devoted to the stewardship of Sonoma’s architectural heritage for 40 years and has guarded the historic integrity of buildings and neighborhoods through its many programs designed to maintain the distinct visual character we have come to know and enjoy.

The goals of The League are:

  • To increase awareness of the unique nature and history of the region.
  • To promote interest in preserving and enhancing the historic resources of
    Sonoma Plaza and surrounding areas.

For 40 years, The Sonoma League has been active in maintaining the look and feel of Sonoma. Activities include building restoration, docent staffing of historical points of interest, maintenance of an historic resources library, development of a growing collection of historical photos, protection of historic landmarks, a spring cottage and garden tour, and an annual awards program honoring Valley properties. More than 20,000 guests participate in League activities and events each year and the League maintains a database of over 800 historic properties available for use by the public.
