Glen Ellen CA

vineyards at Glen Ellen CA

Just down the road from the enclave of Kenwood and five miles down Highway 12 from the town of Sonoma, Glen Ellen CA is home to 800 or so residents. Just above the community, writer Jack London built his Beauty Ranch, where the author lived from 1909 until his death in 1916. Now Jack London State Historic Park, the ranch hosts the “House of Happy Walls,” built by London’s wife, Charmian, after his death and now a museum housing London memorabilia. A trail leads from there, past the graves of Jack and Charmian, to the ruins of “Wolf House,” the writer’s dream mansion that burned during the final phase of its construction.  Glen Ellen CA is also the location of the sprawling Sonoma State Developmental Center and Quarryhill Botanical Garden, a research facility open to the public and housing the largest collection of Asian plants in North America.
