The Blue Wing Inn
The Blue Wing Inn in Sonoma, California, was one of the first hotels built in the state north of San Francisco. What began as the first property transfer in the new Pueblo de Sonoma and a simple adobe residence, transformed with time and the addition of more rooms into a storied landmark. During the California Gold Rush, it was used by miners going to and from the gold fields and by the U.S. Army soldiers stationed in Sonoma. After many years, owners and uses, the Blue Wing Inn was purchased by the State of California in 1968 and is currently under study for its best use as part of the Sonoma State Historic Park.
