This landmark is located at the southwest corner of California Drive and Highway 29 in Yountville, California. There are 16 other California State Historical Landmarks in Napa County.


This home for California's aged and disabled veterans was established in 1884 by Mexican War veterans and members of the Grand Army of the Republic. In January 1897 the Veterans Home Association deeded the home and its 910 acres of land to the State, which has since maintained it.
