The History of the Museum of Sonoma County

The Museum of Sonoma County was built as a cultural and educational center to showcase the history and culture of the region. The museum was created in order to celebrate the history and cultural heritage of Sonoma County. The museum was opened in November 2016 as the only cultural center of its kind located outside San Francisco. The museum was built on the site of an old auto repair shop. The original vision for the museum was to incorporate an old car garage into the building, but it was ultimately decided to use Greek Revival architecture in order to preserve the site’s historic character. When selecting the Greek Revival style, many factors were considered, including the building’s visual connection to the surrounding county area and the historic value of the building’s design. The museum also wanted to ensure that the architecture preserved the site’s natural beauty and its connection to the creek. The design was also inspired by the museum’s history, as the architects recalled a time when the site was once a hub of automobile repair.
