General Vallejo Walking Tour of the Sonoma Plaza


George Webber returns to the Sonoma Plaza for a limited-run walking tour:

“The General Tells All.”

Since 2003, local historian and actor George Webber has portrayed General Mariano Vallejo, the founder of the town of Sonoma.

“I am very happy to bring the General back to the beautiful Sonoma Plaza once again,” says Mr. Webber, the last scheduled tour season with the General was back in 2007, and since then he has only grown in my estimation and appreciation.

“The General Tells All” comprises 90 minutes of exposition, erudition, frivolity and merriment, as General Vallejo recounts his amazing life on the ground he walked between 1834 and 1890.

The tour begins at the Bear Flag Statue in the North-East corner of the Sonoma Plaza; highlights include:

  • Blue Wing Inn
  • Sonoma Mission Indian Memorial
  • Sonoma Barracks
  • Site of the General’s Casa Grande
  • Tales of the Rancho and Mission Eras of California
  • True story of the Bear Flag Revolt and the Gold Rush
  • Beautiful Sonoma Plaza
  • Maybe a Historic Saloon


“The General Tells All” is a true “family friendly” tour, says Mr. Webber: “I hope that parents bring their children along---a walking tour is a very forgiving lecture format, and when there are children present I make it fun for both them and the adults by telling the story from a kid-centric perspective. Fourth graders are perfect; I have given many school tours, and cover all the topics they are studying now.”
