History of Sonora
Take some time and explore the history of Sonora by stopping by some of its popular landmarks. The Sugg House was originally built in 1857 by William Sugg, a freed slave whose family used the building as a hotel until 1921 when it was closed due to state laws. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was owned by the Sugg family until it was closed.
