National Register #78000804
Llano Road Roadhouse
4353 Gravenstein Highway North
Built 1850 and 1857

The Llano Roadhouse is an excellent example of the Greek Revival farmhouses built by early settlers in Sonoma Valley. All lumber was hand milled: hand-hewn timbers, hand-split siding, hand-planed windows. The construction method is similar to colonial American construction before the advent of balloon framing.

The original one-story part of the building dates to the early 1850's. The two-story section was added around 1857 when the building became a roadhouse for the stage coach between Petaluma and Sebastopol.
