Inscription.  Giovanni Minoggio and Giacomo Mazza, on land purchased from General Mariano Vallejo, built this plumstone building in 1870. When the railroad tracks were extended to Sonoma and the Sonoma train depot built across the street from the Mazza House, the building became a hotel and restaurant, serving the passengers and townspeople of Sonoma.
After the railroad closed down in 1929, the hotel building once again became a private home. In 1985 the Ghilarducci family purchased the building and have continued the process of restoration and preservation, and the tradition of hospitality and service.
Erected 2004 by Native Sons of the Golden West, Barney Noel, Grand President.
