Pino Alto, the summer home of Mary and William T. Sesnon, was built in 1911. Mary Sesnon grew up near Soquel, the daughter of Benjamin and Kate Porter. Mr. Sesnon was vice-president of the Panama-International Exposition. The house was used as a seminary and school until 1978 when Cabrillo College purchased it. Part of the Cabrillo College campus, it is known as Sesnon House.
