Have an Alice in Wonderland experience and visit some of Vallejo's most charming landmarks and architectural wonders!
Visit beautiful Craftsman, Victorian and Colonial historical residences. Several homes designed by Vallejo's notable architect William A. Jones, including a shingled Craftsman house still in his family.
The Julia Morgan mansion in the First Bay Tradition is also part of this year's Tour. Morgan, the first woman architect in California, is famed for her designs of the buildings in William Heart's palatial castle complex at San Simeon. She also designed the reconstruction of the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake there.
Be entertained in the homes by musicians from Solano Community Symphony, other local performers, and CA Maritime Academy Cadets; while enjoying the beauty of these historic properties, guests may also get a surprise visit by Santa, the Mad Hatter Mascot, the Cheshire Cat, or the Lion King!
