Jack London State Historic Park

Jack London State Historic Park is a memorial to writer and adventurer Jack London, who made his home at the site from 1905 until his death in 1916. The park contains the cottage residence where he wrote. After Londonís death, his wife, Charmian, continued to live in the cottage until her death in 1955. "The House of Happy Walls," which Mrs. London built after Jack's death, now houses a museum.

The park, operated and maintained by the Valley of the Moon Natural History Association, is at 2400 London Ranch Road in Glen Ellen, about 20 minutes north of Sonoma. No State services or staff are available. Phone (707) 938-5216 for more information.

The House of Happy Walls is a visitor center/museum with a wheelchair lift at the rear of the building. The main parking area has 3 spaces designated accessible. Assistance may be required with slopes. The paved 400' route from the parking lot to the museum may be accessible for assisted wheelchair users or strong riders. Otherwise, a golf cart driven by park volunteers provides alternate transportation for those who can transfer when arranged in advance with the park. A portable restroom in the picnic area is generally accessible.

Wolf House: A portable restroom on the road to the Wolf House is the only wheelchair accessible restroom regularly available to the public at this time.

The Cottage has been restored. A usable restroom may permit front transfers. Assistance may be needed on the path of travel from the parking area to the cottage entry.
