Recognizing the historical value of his 1910 cottage, Henri Maysonnave willed it to the City of Sonoma in 1989. The Sonoma League for Historic Preservation then secured a long-term lease from the City and in 2008 the League completed restoration of The Heritage Center at Maysonnave House. The building interior displays the furniture of 1920 and the gardens have been restored to the 1910 style. The League Survey of Historical Resources of Sonoma Valley and the Cochran Binders containing details of the properties in Sonoma Valley are available for research.
