Barracks Gift Store

The Gift Store is located in the historic Sonoma Barracks, built to house Mexican troops and later used by U.S. soldiers after California became a U.S. territory. Store merchandise reflects this heritage.

  • Giftware, handcrafted items and folk art representing our diverse history of Native-American life, the Spanish and Mexican eras, passage from U.S. territory to the 31st state.
  • Clothing with California themes for adults and children.
  • Books for young and old include chronicles of pioneer and Native American life, biographies and quirky tales of gold miners and desperados.
  • Educational material, especially for fourth grade students learning about Native American life in their villages and then at the missions.
  • English/Spanish bilingual children books.
  • Sonoma-branded items made in the U.S.A.
  • Year-round Christmas ornaments, flags, magnets, stickers and postcards.

The store is operated by SONOMA PETALUMA PARKS, Inc., formerly known as Sonoma/Petaluma State Historic Parks Association. We are a non-profit organization which operates the Store to generate funds used exclusively for the benefit of the Sonoma and Petaluma Adobe State Historic Parks.
