This is the site of the Poppe General Store, law office and flats, portions of which date back to 1861, all of which were destroyed by a fire in 1911.

The following year this building was constructed as a law office, using fireproof concrete and steel to replace most of what was lost in the conflagration. The front half, substantially the same as when constructed in a hybrid Spanish Revival-Classical style, is unique to Sonoma, California.

It was from this location that R.A. Poppe administered the estates of General and Mrs. M.G. Vallejo.
