A complex history

Sabine Goerke-Shrode

Photos tell the story of how Solano’s government center evolved

Solano County will celebrate the official opening its new Government Center in downtown Fairfield on Dec. 16.  The new glass and steel building now dominates the face of downtown Fairfield. Yet before its advent, there were four different buildings that served as Solano County’s government center.
