Sonoma League for Historic Preservation honors seven projects

Seven properties were honored Nov. 20, by the Sonoma League for Historic Preservation at its annual awards meeting.

Andrews Hall at the Sonoma Community Center, the Holloway property and the Stone Barn at Glen Oaks Ranch received awards of merit while Two Palms Estate, the Quiet Little House, the Bohar Residence and the Fat Pilgrim received awards of excellence.

• The Stone Barn at Glen Oaks Ranch: The Sonoma Land Trust, Degenkoib Engineers and Treeline Construction were honored for preserving a historic 1859 stone barn at 13255 Sonoma Highway in Glen Ellen.

The ranch was once part of the El Rancho Agua Caliente, a land grant that was issued to Gen. Marino Vallejo in 1839. After a series of owners, Col. Charles and Ellen Stuart purchased it in 1859. Stuart built a stone house, stone smoke house and stone barn using local stone and Chinese labor. Stuart called the Ranch Glen Ellen.

Later the village of Glen Ellen used the name for the Post Office and in order to avoid confusion Stuart renamed the ranch Glen Oaks.
