On July 4, 1823, Padre Jose Altimira 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.
This plaque replaces one originally dedicated by the Historical Landmarks Committee, Native Sons of the Golden West, 1926.
