Sonoma in Sonoma County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Poppe-Parmelee Building
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.
