The Blue Wing Inn


The long, low adobe building just across from the mission derives its name from the Blue Wing Inn, gambling room and saloon of the gold rush era. It is thought that portions of the building were originally constructed to house soldiers assigned to the Sonoma Mission and that those structures were joined together and a second story added at a later date. The building was acquired by the state in 1968 and houses several concession-operated gift shops. It is California Historical Landmark Number 17
