National Register of Historic Places in Solano County, California
Vallejo Old City Historic District was the location of many of Vallejo's first Victorian homes. Because of the steep hill, the area was never developed commercially.
Today the district contains examples of Victorian architectures dating from the 1850's. While none of these houses have the lavish scale often associated with the Victorian era, they are typical of houses built in small and growing communities in the West during the last half of the 19th century.
Many of these homes have been maintained in their original appearance, while others have been allowed to fall into disrepair or have been remodeled and modernized to the extent that they no longer give a hint of their original character.
Because many of the original large plots were subdivided for new houses, the district now contains houses built at various times from the 1850's up through the 1960's.
