History
The beautiful ocean-view property where the Sesnon House at Cabrillo College sits was purchased in 1858 by the Porter family. The only daughter of the Porter family married into the Sesnon family and soon designed their summer mansion, the Pino Alto, in 1911. After World War II, the home was sold to the Salesian Order where it was maintained as a seminary and school until Cabrillo College purchased the property in 1978. Due to the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989, the building was renovated and reopened in the fall of 1996.

    Good Food, Helpful Day-of Coordinator

    My wife and I got married at Sesnon House in the summer of 2018. Chrissie, the day-of coordinator/manager of the House, was very helpful and made sure the day went smoothly. The food was excellent and the staff polite.
