Long Description:
"On July 4, 1823, Padre Jose Altamira 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.
