1. The Salvador Vallejo Adobe (Swiss Hotel)
Built by Salvador Vallejo, brother of General Vallejo, this two-story Monterey Colonial style adobe was constructed as the Post Commandancia. In the Bear Flag Revolt, Salvador was taken to Sutter’s Fort, Sacramento, as prisoner along with General Vallejo, Jacob Leese and Prudon. One of the few remaining original buildings on the Plaza, it has since been extensively remodeled
