The Benicia Capitol State Historic Park

Benicia Capitol Historic Park has been a State Park since 1958 and along with the Benicia State Recreation Area comprise the only two State Parks in Solano County. It is the only pre-Sacramento Capitol building still standing. The Benicia Capitol Building was used for several years as a City Hall, a library as well as other community uses. The building and the interior have been restored to exhibit a legislative session as it might have occurred when it was the California State Capitol from January 1853 to February 1854.

The Fischer-Hanlon House is the only building in the State of California parks system that exhibits the life of the 19th century upper middle class family. The house was dedicated to the state of California in 1968. The house is fully furnished with original artifacts that span over a century of family use.
