Roughly 6 miles from the town of Sonoma and “just down the road” from Kenwood, Glen Ellen is home to approximately 800 residents. The first house here was built in 1859 by Charles Stuart who also planted a 1000-acre vineyard and established Glen Ellen Winery. The hamlet is perhaps best known perhaps as the location of Jack London State Historic Park, the site of the former ranch and home of writer Jack London who lived there from 1909 until his death in 1916. The estate consists of the ruins of “Wolf House,” London’s dream mansion that burned shortly before it was scheduled to be completed. Charmian, the author’s wife, built the “House of Happy Walls” on the property. It is now a wonderful museum. Several ranch buildings survive, as does the small cottage where Jack London died. Glen Ellen is also the location of Quarryhill Botanical Garden, the Sonoma County Developmental Center and a handful of wineries and vineyards.
